What he is teaching these owners is Alpha attitude in the pack.

They are head honcho and if they aren't then the pet will be due to natural tendacies.

The "boss" here thought I was nuts shortly after we got together with a wolf I acquired.

IT decided to help himself to the steak bones and scraps I had on a plate on the table. I intended to give them to him after I washed up from supper so I could take him outside to eat them. When I cam out of the bathroom and saw him half up in a chair with his mouth in the plate of scraps we had a fight there in the floor of the kitchen and the "boss" thought I had lost my mind.

Now I never hurt the wolf but I did grab him and force him to the floor and pin him down with me on top of him until he gave up and started whining. This enforced the line of command as it is in the pack mentality. I was "top dog" and he came after me.
I "allow" him to do things or I "give" him things. He doesn't take anything as it isn't his to take or have.
She thought I was trying to kill him or something when the chair and cups went flying and she turned around to find out what the ruckus was behind her.
Of course a 200lb man and a 140 lb wolf flopping on the floor probably was funny to see.

Now he got his paybacks a few months later when I forgot to notify him I was there one night by talking to him. A buddy gave me a ride home that night so it was a case of strange truck, no inside light, and wind in my face. As I was getting out of the truck I saw the wolf coming towards us past the porch light(shadowy only due to dark gray/black hair) and mentioned this to my friend. When the wolf got to the front of the truck I jumped out from behind the truck door and growled at him. By the grace of God I had my jacket on and my arm up high to catch him under the chin as he knocked me off the ground as he attacked me!
LOL!! After a very quick hollering session of who I was and to get off me and a fending off of all the licking(apologising) he was giving me, I got up to my friend inside his truck big eyed and scared with both doors shut! He had, in his concern for my well being, reached over and shut the door on my side so the wolf wouldn't come in with him. He said he figured if the damn crazy thing had attacked me it would surely get him too.

The point is though that I was head(alpha) male in the pack of 1 man, 1 woman, 3 babies, and 1 wolf. No matter what happened I was in charge. When I was gone he would protect the house. The above attack was my fault due to not letting him know who I was and not realising that he couldn't "wind" me as I growled/challenged his territory/pack. He instinctively did what any animal would do in the same situation hence the lack of retribution on my part.


The little 1lb. mini-cujo shown above would have gotten the punt for attacking me like it did the camera in those clips! I honestly think that is why those type of dogs are so small. If they weighed over 15-20 lbs they could do some serious/deadly damage to someone they didn't take kindly to at the moment.

I will have to see if I can find this show around here somehow. He seems to do a good job and I know that quite a few pet owners need some training on how to take on their leadership in the pack.
