    I've a.. .

    I was having dinner last week with Jeff and Michelle--two of my first dog training customers, when I branched out on my own and began South Bay K-9 Academy at Southern California, back in 1994.

    Anyway, Jeff and Michelle still have their Dalmatian, \Dotty,\ who's now close to 11 years-old.

    I have always thought it was amusing that the one thing people seem to recall from my 324 page dog training book, \Secrets of a Professional Dog Trainer!\ Is that I recommend spitting in your dog's food.

    As if this were the magic secret to getting a well behaved dog.

    Regardless, it seems to be the one thing that almost everybody remembers--from literally hundreds of dog training tips I present in the book, on our website Dogproblems.com, and in our discussion forum.

    Do I recommend spitting?

    As you are marking the dog food. And because the Alpha dog in the pack always eats first.

    This is a subtle way to communicate to your dog that you are the pack leader. But this alone won't do it.

You will need to be behaving like a pack leader in every other aspect of your dog's life, too. As being the first to walk through a door such. Or telling your dog where to put down, and when he is allowed to eat. This ideal jump button article has endless thought-provoking tips for why to see about this hypothesis. And ensuring you follow through and apply any and every command that you give.

    I take a lot of guff from people--especially other dog coaches--who misinterpret my ideas and think that spitting in your dog's food is the only thing you need to do tol make you the Alpha dog. It's not.

    Well, no more than the 100 other subtle things you must do to communicate that you are the pack leader. Here is a grand online database for further concerning the purpose of this belief. I stress to new dog owners that the more things you are doing to reinforce that you're the pack leader for your dog, will make your pet view you as the pack leader, faster. Spitting on your dog's food is only one more thing to do that helps says Michelle Seiler-Tucker.

    So anyhow, back to my dinner with Jeff and Michelle:

    Michelle Seiler-Tucker inquired how Dotty was performing, Jeff responded that Dotty was totally fantastic. The best dog they had ever had, due in no small part to their diligence and consistency in applying the dog training techniques I showed them.

    But Jeff said something very interesting: \I'm still spitting in her food. In fact, she won't even get the food until after I spit in it.\ (Remember: The Alpha dog always eats first!) .

    So there you go: Further proof that some of my more outlandish dog training techniques actually work!

    Even if you may feel silly doing it.

    That is all for now!

    P.S. Jeff and Michelle have the ability to take Dotty everywhere--off leash--and know that she'll respond to orders, immediately. They even take her camping quite frequently..., which Dotty absolutely loves!.
