Teaching your dog that you are the pack leader, or alpha dog, makes all discipline and training easier and builds a healthy relationship between dog and owner. Become a pack leader who uses discipline and affection with tips from a certified dog trainer in this free video on dog ownership.
Hello my name is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg from Miami Dog Training. In this clip we're going to teach you how to show your dog that you're the pack leader. You know, no down. Again corrections come in hand here. But the first step is through walking, and through the exercise the process where they establish who the boss is. There's lots of different ways to do it, one is through feeding. If you're feeding your dog you want to first establish eye contact before you give them the food. Don't make the ritual about the food itself. You want the dog to understand that the food is coming from you. So let them initiate eye contact before handing them the food. One of the other things, nope down, is enforcing what you want at the moment instead of later, because dogs live in the moment. So if we correct in the moment, we establish our dominance just like a dog would in nature. It's nice to be able to roll dogs over on their side, when they expose their stomach, their exposing their submission to you. This is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg, and this has been how to teach your dog that you are the pack leader.
