Myth 3

Dogs that are aggressive are showing dominance.

True or False?

-

False!

Most of the time, it is fearful dogs that most often aggress to make a scary situation go away. An alpha dog rarely aggresses because other dogs accept that he's boss. However, some dogs can be pushy and snarl at each other to get their way. Also, adolescent dogs may act up because they want to challenge the top dog.
