The desire to impose your will on another or others, by physical violence if needed. The desire to be in charge, the dislike of anyone telling you what to do and the hatred of having anyone trying to impose their will upon you.
Now give me your version....

Do people differentiate between dog dominance & wanting to dominate the handler/owner/trainer? I can see the wanting to dominate 'close' humans as a big PITA as Hired says, and have heard about a dog like that from my friend. But wanting to dominate other dogs seems like a social status/aggression thing, and not necessarily a bad thing provided the dog-dog interactions can be managed, and that behaviour does not transfer to the human 'boss'. That requires a strong 'leader' who will keep pack heirarchy established and the 'unit' peaceful in a multiple-dog household.
I am quite OK with my dog wanting to dominate the adversary (helper) but NOT me. So far, I don't see any attempts from Icon to dominate me - all his 'humping' has been on objects (bed, tug, etc.) or the other dogs (female, male) in the household.

If you have something interesting you would like to post, that would be great too.

BE - lay off. I am tired of being your target for whiplash, k? I have been nothing but positive when commenting on your posts, so would appreciate the same courtesy, thanks. If you have nothing positive to say/contribute, then 'silence is golden'. One can disagree with things being posted, but do it in a civil manner - others seem to be able to do this. As Hired said - I am just trying to generate some discussion - what's the harm in that?
