Too much emphasis has been placed on comparing the similarities of domestic dogs and wolves and not enough on recognizing the significant differences between these 2 species. This unilateral and misguided focus has perpetuated myths about dominance and the "need" for owners to be "alpha", which has had a significant negative impact on dog training and handling philosophies. The result has been a communication breakdown between owners and their dogs resulting in conflict for both parties. We will discuss behavioral, lifestyle and genetic differences between domestic dogs and wolves and how this impacts dog-owner interactions. We will consider challenges in working with owner-directed aggression, behavior modification strategies that work, those that don’t work, and management options.
