Dominance Behavior in Canids

I didn’t really even WANT to make a post about this.

The alpha-beta-omega model of wolf packs is dead in scientific literature, hammered into the ground, so to speak, and it’s been dead for over ten years. So why am I still hearing about it on TV and reading about it in articles? Why are popular dog trainers that encourage you to “be the alpha” still taken seriously?

I think the unfortunate truth is that the idea that there are strong and ferocious leaders in wolf packs and that you, too, can take on that role with your dog is just somehow appealing to people. Almost romantic, in the older sense of the word. And because of this, it makes money. It sells werewolf media. It sells dog training classes. Educational science channels that have no business promoting this false ideology keep it on board because it gets people watching.

If you couldn’t tell, I’m pretty fed up with the whole thing.

I??? this is just really gross and unwarranted?? I mean it may not be the best design you saw today but? And I mean this is a decent design in my opinion even though that doesn’t really matter here.
I don’t want people to think I’m going out to attack them or hate them because of these posts, but honestly Fh blogging has descended into flat out bullying recently and I’m going to call people out because it’s a shame to see this community go this way

I didn’t mean it to be a mean comment it was a joke, but I understand where you are coming from and I guess because of my bad mood I’ve been a bit jerk? I’ll try to stop coming off as a bully more.

Honestly, come off as however you want to. Do what you want. I don’t control what you post, and I’m not going to tell you what to post or what’s acceptable or unacceptable to say. I’m attempting to point out things that may be unnecessary and harmful because I’m seeing it engulf most of the tag, not make you stop doing things just because I told you to do so.

Having your character constantly smell like blood is like the opposite of threatening

And especially for smaller animals it’s not so much of a ‘fear me’ and more of a; I’m most likely injured come eat me
