Unleashed by Brad Pattison

Idiot trainer from At the End of My Leash has written a new book. Here is a short excerpt

Quote:
I discovered this technique when I started doggy daycare. I realized thatif I didn't step around dogs, they'd quickly learn to get out of my way. They'd pay attention immediately and follow me around for hours—either literally of at least with their eyes. In other words, I had the dogs' undivided attention—such a cool thing. They would look up at me as if to say, “What's next?” It was clear that I had the alpha advantage. To keep your alpha advantage, make sure you move naturally and maintain confident body language. Your dog needs to learn that your physical movements can be powerful and that if he gets in the way, he might get hurt.
is this a lesson you want to teach your dog? That you'll hurt him for getting in the way?

If your dog is too submissive then, according to Pattison he is also "alpha"
Quote:
Alpha Dog Test
Not sure if your dog thinks he's running the family circus?
Here are some telltale sings that your pooch has assumed the role of pack leader.
He's always pulling at the leash, taking the lead position on walks and trying to control his movements—an yours
  • He's always jumping up on other dogs and people or growling and barking excessively to take on a dominant and protective role.
  • She hogs the human furniture, particularly the bed and the couch, and growls territorially when she's expected to share these spaces
  • She ignores you when you use basic commands like “Sit”, “Stay”, and “Come”
  • She cooperates with your commands when it suits her, but when it doesn't, she tries to manipulate you, either by growling aggressively or by showing exaggerated submissiveness—such as shrieking as if she's in pain, twirling around in circles or dropping down and rolling over like a diva who's had her crown stolen.

In the land of the blind, the man with one eye is king. With the abysmal ignorance of dogs in general, even his methods are a step upwards.
