    Respond to this video…He may not be abusing the dog, but I still don’t see why he needs to bring discomfort into training any way. Why not just teach the dog to ‘sit’?!

    @Psychelectric Dominance challenges are incredibly rare and, even when there is one, people usually miss it. Do you actually know what dominance is? Dominance is not simply being in charge of a pack; it is not physically beating up on subordinates; it is not challenging for social rank, which hardly ever happens, if at all. It describes a complex relationship that may only last a number of seconds or one sequence. As soon as that relationship or interaction is finished, there is no dominance.

    Then I must have been misinformed or maybe I’m using the term incorrectly.

    What would you call it when dogs pick out certain people of a house hold and say, hump their leg or go around a particular family member and bark and bite at them. That to me seems like a pack heirarchy behavior, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe the word “dominance is incorrect” but I hope their isn’t a semantics argument with that. I suppose I wasn’t clear in what I meant, my apologies.

    I think you miss my point about how we communicate with dogs. Replicating a dogs communication is not the same as being able to communicate effectively to a dog.
    There may be some communication gaps between a dog’s behavior and a human’s interpretation but that doesn’t invalidate the point.

    I think this discussion is just a case of two people saying the same thing with 2 different perspectives. Because I agree with most of what you are saying.

    Im not sure how to take the idea that dogs “know” we are not dogs. How do we verify how a dog interprets the world, especially considering the early ages people get puppies? Im not sure to what degree we are interrpreted as “different” in the mind of a dog. Please point me in the direction of a study that verifies that idea, as that would be most helpful

    It seems that dogs treat us as part of the “pack”, how else would you explain man’s long standing relationship with dogs?

    @Psychelectric For me, the research done on correctional, dominance-theory training methods e.g. Alpha rolls, neck jabs etc., shows that we are more likely to get bitten when performing these behaviours. If by neck jabbing we were really imitating bites, dogs would be much more accepting of these ‘corrections’. Also, the fact that our ‘pack’ with our dogs is imposed is a large thing, for me. There are many differences between dogs and humans, so I think this warrants a new definition entirely.

    @Psychelectric Sure, we may replicate in that I can lip lick, body shake, submissive grin etc., but that doesn’t mean I can do these things in the same way as a dog or perform these signals along with the many other signals appearing at these times in the same ways as another dog. It’s impossible. Olfactory communication is just untouchable for humans,.

    @Psychelectric You’ve just opened a minefield! 😉 The problem with ‘dominance’ is that there is a few general definitions and a few specific, ethological definitions. Therefore, confusion will occur and I find it much easier to tell people and my clients to forget about dominance and think about relationships in more simple, realistic terms. Humping is for many things: in play, to practise innate behaviours (in play usually) and as a calming signal to help a dog calm themselves down.

    Respond to this video…I have hardly ever seen a dog that purposely goes out of its way to full on (level 4+ on the bite scale) to bite someone. If I ever saw it, I would check it out with a vet immediately. Barking is usually attention seeking, alarm barking, or territorial barking- and there’s many variations in between. Honestly, I don’t see any pack hierarchy behaviour at all. We naturally control all the resources so pack hierarchy never comes into question.

    Respond to this video…Even in feral domestic dogs, there is a very loose pack hierarchy. Check out Dr Ian Dunbar’s Phd study on a domestic dog pack or group. He studied for 10 yrs and, sure he found hierarchies, but not linear dominance hierarchies that everyone supposes. When resources are limited and clumped, like in captive settings, there is more chance of dominance hierarchies. But when they are spread out evenly as in a home, dominance is never a factor of relationships.

    Thanks for the well thought out post
    Ill definately look into Dr. Dunbar’s work.
    I like discussions like this, because if Im wrong, I want to be proven wrong rather than read “angry” posts without substance It seems the “dominance” misconception is causing some confusion in the dog training world eh?

    Also I am curious if you would elaborate about our coexistence with dogs (See my post that begins with “Im not sure how to take the idea that dogs “know” we arent dogs-“)

    @Psychelectric Dominance is causing confusion and, for me, the bottom line is that it is a way of describing micro-relationships but not a way of interpreting whole relationships or social structures- these things are way too dynamic to be categorised into dominance and submission. Since we don’t communicate with dogs using their language and they read and interact with us differently than with dogs, I think it’s common sense that dogs won’t view us as other dogs. They see us a…

    Respond to this video…stimulus that controls resources, I think, and is an object of many things: fun, fear, play, affection etc. I have a bit of a hard view on it, to be honest! I don’t know of any specific studies but there are some by Dr Sophia Yin that demonstrate harsh, dog-like corrections by humans to dogs do not work and only escalate situations. There is also one showing how dogs read our specific body language patterns (in this case to find food) by Reid (2008).

    That’s an interesting idea (stimulus that controls food). My take on it is sort of looking at it from the way humans tend to anthropomorphize animals. Thus I have a view to the flipside of that ie dogs canipomorphise (WARNING: made up word) us, at least to a degree. I don’t think it’s a black and white issue, and it’s certainly not important in the scheme of how we treat our animals. It’s probably a mix of the two. Either way, it was good talking to you.

    Great video. We adopted a collie/cattle dog mix about 6 months ago. She’s about 1 1/2 years old now and very sweet and energetic. We live in a remote area and don’t see a lot of people, especially in the winter. But, when we do see people while we’re out walking, she gets very excited and repeatedly jumps up on all 4’s as the people approach. As they get closer it is hard to hold her down. Any ideas on how we can work with her on this? Thanks!

    @Paul480 well im studying dog training and this is actually a technique used by many how ever in my opinion using positive reinforcement is a much quicker and healthyer way to train a dog:

    when you dog jumps simply ignore him to show him you disaprove, as soon as he gets on the ground praise him and reward him, it might take a little while but soon enough your dog will understand that jumping will get him nothing. slowly stop rewarding the dog by extending the time before the reward.

    @Paul480 There is no conflict here at all! The trainer wants the dog to stay down when asked up, if the dog stays down he gets rewarded, if the dog jumps up he gets punished. All the people voting this up just dont understand that this is not conficting… it is the same as asking a dog to do something when asked.

    You do understand he wants the dog to stay down whenever anyone asks him to jump up right?

    My dog is a 70-pound German Shepherd; she does NOT jump on me. However, often people whom I don not know well come to our home; by time they get in the door, her level of excitement is through the roof! She ALWAYS jumps, as if trying to make eye contact. I need to lower the level of excitement BEFORE anyone comes through the door. She is very excitable. What do I do?
