I think this message is very timely with governments having completed the canine genome and are now relating domestic pups to humans in a more significant way, even with regard to treating CANCER!  Now please keep in mind, the videos that I am proposing here by Doggy Dan DO NOT claim to train people, just dogs, however a lot of what he says can be applied to people.

Having said that, and understanding that our basic physical nature is animal, there were some things that struck me about what Doggy Dan says, which I think can be applied to my household.

If you click on any of the interactive links below, the products are meant only to help you train dogs….period!  I just happened to get more from what he says and thought you might also.
The Pack Leader

You already know that you really need to be the pack leader in your home or workplace in order to be successful so how do you do this?  Do you need to yell, beat your chest, stand on tables and proclaim that you are top dog?  No you don’t.  Studying facts about dogs can help with this.

In the wild, dogs view every member of the pack as part of the family and how each dog is dealt with by the pack leader, will depend on the nature of the dog.  As with any animal, each human being displays different traits and characteristics.  Therefore, doing well with one employee or child and having a hard time with another is no reflection on YOU as a person or leader. People and animals have to be dealt with differently.
Difficult, smart, driven people and animals have certain ways of receiving messages from you and it is not just from your vocal cords.  Bribing, warring/fighting with, etc. will not only cause you major frustration, but could end in very negative events as peoples’/animals’ instinctual, defensive responses kick in.  Learn from Doggie Dan about how successful animal pack leaders behave:

The best pack leaders are calm and consistent. Their resolve is not in how heavy the blow is, but how they consistently administer fair correction.  Doing this gains the trust and respect of those that follow them.  Once the follower chooses to follow the pack leader, relationships will be successful and rewarding to both parties.  You have to win the followers’ minds.
  • Understand how your followers ‘see’ things so that you can communicate with them on their level.  When your negative, aggresive actions bring out negative instinctive behaviors both animals and humans forget the initial purpose of the interaction to begin with.  You can’t apply boardroom executive behavioral psychology to teens and toddlers.  Meet them where they are, despite where you think you are.
  • If you are struggling with training your dog, there is a good possibility that he/she does not see you as the pack leader, specifically if they are of age and you have spent the appropriate amount of time in training them.  It is incumbent upon your success to become the pack leader now and it will also determine how those that are superior to you, rate your success.  You can learn more about what Doggy Dan says about dogs when you.
