This is garbage

The following "rules" are a small sampling of the misinformation being fed to dog owners today.
8. You should not lay on the floor to watch TV when the dog is around and no one should roll around the floor playing with the dogs, as a human should never put himself in an equal or lesser height position than the dog. 
9. You are the one who greets newcomers first, the dog is the last who gets attention (the pack leader is the one who greets newcomers and lets the rest know when it is safe to greet the newcomer)
10. If a dog is laying in your path, do not walk around the dog, either make the dog move or step over the dog.
11. During the time you are establishing your higher pack position, no hugs should be given to the dog by you, as a dominant dog may consider this a challenge of power.

There are much more effective, fun, loving, and sensible ways to establish leadership with your Home Dawg.

#9 As long as this is not taken to the extreme, "rule 9" can be used.

If any of these rules were given to you in the course of your training, call us.  We can help!  Don't hang out with that silly pack.  Follow the leader and have fun along the way.
