Great resource explaining the problem with Dominance Theory
#1
I found this today: http://www.dogwelfarecampaign.org/why-not-dominance.php

It explains where the idea of dominance theory came from and the problems with using it to explain the behavior of our dogs.

Great read, so well written. I note the acknowledgement of public awareness. I see this as a huge obstacle it changing the mentality. It is not the majority of dog owners who will come in contact with trainers who have more updated views therefore many just run with the ideas that they grew up with. Dominance Theory being around for so many generations is it's greatest strength.

Thanks for the article, I saved it.

That's awesome! I'm a little busy at the moment so I didn't get to read it all (will definitely come back to it) but I did see it has citations to back it for all those people who may be in doubt. Thumbsup
