Redefining "Alpha"

This is a follow up to my post about dogs as pack animals. Check out the very well written post over at DogStarDaily by Nicole Wilde that has the proven science behind my previous post.

The post also includes the following link to this article: "Whatever happened to the term Alpha Wolf?"

In other news I am very excited that Patricia McConnell PhD is coming to Maine for a seminar on dog to dog aggression in June. Nicole Wilde is also on the slate for an upcoming date. I will be attending both. FMI go to http://www.happytailsportland.com Click on the links for higher education and seminars.

Unfortunately, Happy Tails Dog Training Center is closing. I would check on my deposit and whether the seminar is still going off.
