Description


There is a dramatic disconnect between what behavioral scientists know about social dominance in animals and how the concept has been applied to the social relationships dogs have with other dogs and with people. This is not just an academic argument, but has significant implications regarding the training and welfare of pet dogs and the human animal bond. Learn what science has to say about social dominance, including three lines of evidence that show striving to be at the top of a hierarchy is NOT the basis for social relationships for either wolves or dogs. Discover what behaviorists studying social relationships in dogs now think are the most important factors influencing the formation of those relationships and how you can help promote safe and mutually beneficial ones.
