More Stupid stuff that is taught to dog owners.
Let me make this as clear as possible, a dog that jumps up on you is happy to see you. And is in No Way shape or form attempting to be an alpha and show dominance or try to dominate you.
Any dog training person that tells you differently, does not know much about animal (dog) behavior. And they most likely will wind up doing much more harm than good, for you and your pooch.
Although on extremely rare occasions you will have a dog attempt to boss you around by standing up against you, these dogs are clearly not alphas.
Their inaccurate theory in regards to this behavior are based on the notion that dogs mount for dominance.
