You've heard about the alpha dog, right? Well, it's true. Dogs instinctively identify one of them as the alpha dog. The one who sets the rules. The one who leads the pack.
This is great thing and a natural part of dog packs. At the ranch, our team members become the alpha of the group so they can ensure that the dogs take their direction when they are playing. That helps make sure that they are able to have fun, stay relaxed and listen to corrections if necessary!
