I've been curious about what things others do or make their dog do to keep their place in the ladder. Like do you make your dog sit before meals? Before going out the door? What stuff do you think is hooey as far as dominance causing. Just always been curious about it. I make her sit before i put her food down, i go through the door first, i make her sit before putting the leash on, make her sit before letting her out the door. I practice good walking by making her walk by my side but sometimes tell her ok go ahead so she can be a dog as well. What stuff do you practice.
