I just started watching it from the first season, right now it doesn't look like he's being very alpha, except when he pinches the dog to get him to stop barking

I know my golden would not respond to the aggresive treatment. It would confuse him.

I think the early shows were intended to help people who had "red" dogs. Dogs that had a history of bad behavior and the owners were at the end of their rope and Ceaser was the last resort before doing something drastic such as putting the dog to sleep. And these dog owners did need to be trained. But, those shows were dealing with a specific type of dog. Ceasar's methods for those kinds of dogs are entirely inappropriate for dogs like mine. To me that was obvious.

However, as a person who goes to dog parks, I can tell you for sure Ceasar's advice of "be calm but assertive" is right on the mark. I see too many dog park people whose approach is psycotic and hysterical. And their dogs sure show it!

" I can tell you for sure Ceasar's advice of "be calm but assertive" is right on the mark"

I certainly can agree with the be calm but I would be wary of telling people to be assertive as some may read the definition and be aggressive with their dogs.

as·ser·tive

/əˈsɜr tɪv/ Show Spelled [uh-sur-tiv] Show IPA
adjective 1. confidently aggressive or self-assured; positive: aggressive; dogmatic:




" I see too many dog park people whose approach is psycotic and hysterical. "

I don't think any professional dog trainer would teach people to be psycotic and hysterical.

BTW we solved the issue you describe by only allowing it when we invite it. I say "hugs" and slap my stomach, and the dog can jump up and hug us. Both our Goldens do this now but not when we don't invite it.
Great idea, my pup also loves to do this when we come home after being away for a bit longer than usual. Normally we don't allow it, but now that I think of it, it is more of a "gentle" raise and squeeze versus the jumping onto you.
