    Ah okay. Thanks for the explanation

    He doesn't do as you describe. He might have a bit of snout on my foot when he's sleeping every now and again, but that's about it. However, you comment suggests that dogs protecting their owners is a definite no no (or rather, a sign of dominance)?

    Of course dogs protect their owners. When they need to, or when it is asked of them. They do not need to be protective when sitting at the computer. They do not need to be protective every time they walk out the gate in broad daylight (well, not usually )

    There is a great difference between a confident dog who knows when the moment to protect has arrived, and the dog that thinks his sole purpose in life is to pretect his owner at all costs, from everything.
    I hope the way I'm putting it is making sense to you. If not, I will try again with other words, as I believe this to be true very strongly.

    Phew. I was trying to figure out what other ways to put it, or words to use.

    hehe took her on a walk today, she was loads more confident with the other dogs, even though I couldn't take her out for a few days due to the heavy rain and partial flooding in the park. Just curious, would this have anything to do with the dominance training, I was wondering if she feels more secure because her social status has been reinforced...?
