I was watching Ian Dunbar, a professional dog trainer recently. I think he has a lot of valid things to say and does attempt to understand us. However, my only issue is what is considered natural dog behavior. We are pack animals and there is discipline within the group. This can sometimes be a push by the alpha. So, how would Dunbar address that issue.
Over all, I think treating us with love and consideration is really all we want. So, positive reinforcement is welcomed. But, I think structure and consistency also work, especially when the owner is alpha, as mine is.
