another alpha pack theory thing, folks are proving their "leadership" by harrassing their dogs while eating ie, putting hands in food, spitting on food, taking food out of dogs mouth...... anyone here do this stuff.
just speaking for myself, you touch my evening meal you will most likely end up with a fork thru yr hand.
people argue that is asserts yr dominance, makes emergency action possible if you have to remove a poison bait from yr dog.
has anyone here seen a truly dominant dog? i have seen only 2 in 40 years and heard about another one, mess with their food i think not unless you enjoy getting chunks of yr own meat sewed back on to your body.
