Dealing With A Dominant Dog

Wrestling back the leadership of the pack from a dominant dog can be a challenge. It will be a battle of wills. You should assert your dominance and be sure to be consistent about establishing rules and making sure these are followed. Your dominant dog may need retraining on obedience commands so you will be able to communicate on the same level. 

If your dominant dog acts as if he owns the couch, be firm in letting him stay on the floor and never give him a chance to sit on the couch even for a short time. During mealtimes, eat first and feed your dog once you are finished. This is one way canines assert dominance. The pack leader gets to eat first before the rest of the pack. 

Asking assistance from your veterinary clinic Forest Hill, MD will also go a long way in addressing any behavior problem. For more details visit the website - http://animalmedicalcenterofbelair.com/
