Absolutely love how people when I mentioned "dominance in dogs" think of Cesar Millan. That thought has been there before, during and after his appearance.
And personally (quite a few trainers, breeders, owners, etc agree) dominance is there. It's not "hierarchy" we're talking about, it's whose who, and who walks over who. Not that I'd want to walk over my dog - it's that I don't want her to walk over me!
But because half of dog people (trainers, owners, so on so forth) say dominance does not exist, the other half of us are so obviously wrong. I'm wrong on here, wrong on a "sweet talk your dog" forum, I'm tired of it, and may be taking a break from all of it as well. I have certain people's emails, they have mine, and that is all I will be using (along with FB as I am talking with someone on there about training too).
So if I don't reply for a while I swear to god I am not ignoring you :)
