I was thinking on this topic (as I often do) when I was getting ready for bed last night. So many owners feel that they need to "prove they are alpha" to their dogs.

I wish we could change the language to "provide consistent and unambiguous leadership".

I don't think most dogs are "challenging" us. They are just trying to pick up the slack because we aren't doing our jobs.

IMO, that holds true for raising kids as well. A happy kid is one who knows the rules and who has parents who keep fair and consistent boundaries so the kids can relax and enjoy childhood . . .
