What Real Alpha Dogs Don’t Do ; Myth Busting

Real alpha dogs don’t give timeouts.

Although doggy timeouts are useful for such things as momentarily stopping an unacceptable behavior that your dog is doing and giving you, the one that’s getting ready for the rubber room a much needed break from his unwanted extracurricular activities. Your dog will not learn the error of his ways from a doggy timeout, nor will he learn the proper form of doggy etiquette that is expected from him, from this.

  1. Hey Jodi,

    Timeouts only really help out the dog owner from going totally crazy, it doesn’t teach the dog anything.

  2. I totally believe “timeouts” are more likely to make a dog more upset,and possibly develop separation anxiety from doing that to them.- Lets say A child- who “may” think about the wrongdoing, a dog is not going to think about it.
