Dog Conspiracy


Who leads and who follows?

You need to establish the pack leaders position, before you try and train your dog to do anything, If the dog naturally sees you as the leader and takes the position of follower, it will respond to your requests out of respect rather than bribery with a treat. With alot of the treats on today's market containing sugars and EC preservatives, you can in fact make the dog more hyperactive and untrainable with these added chemicals.

In a dogs world they think about 2 things? Am I the leader? Or Am I the follower!
