i think for start would be not bad to reach some consensus on what is dominant nature of dog :)

Most of those studying the animal world seem to understand the concept, ValK. People who spend their lives living with and observing prides of lions and troupes of gorillas, and so on, seem to understand very well (and in some cases it is a matter of life & death that they should). They must think some dog people [on both the extreme sides of the usual arguments] are raving mad.

Valk, you have spoken about dominace here for ever, but, I will give you the actual version of it.
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....

Urge to obtain superiority and status.

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.

Do we really have to rehash all of this? Like seriously? Just put dominance into the search bar and you will get a dozen topics with 30+ pages... come on man.

BE, its been pretty dead in here lately, the place has been around a long time and everything that can be discussed, has been discussed many times over. When a topic like this comes up, it brings out people who post and share ideas and opinions.
If you have something interesting you would like to post, that would be great too.


by Koots on 11 August 2020 - 14:08

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?
