De-Bunking the "Alpha Dog" Theory - Whole Dog Journal Article

Well thought out article about the differences between dominance or alpha type training vs. positve reinforcement training. I really like the fact that the disagreements are based on facts not emotion. Remember that one of the main ideas in Positive training is to ignore the bad and reward the good. It drives me nuts to hear positive trainers trashing other trainers and their methods. We know what we believe in and it is up to us to show by the dogs we train.
