Dogs respect me as the Alpha.
I had my first dog from age 7 to age 20. She was a AKC German Shephard, trained her, she had 6 pups, trained and sold all 6 pups. I love dogs more than any other animal. Dogs respect me as the Alpha.
I am extremely comfortable with most all dogs, as they are with me. At a dog park, dogs will come to me... in a very short time they sit next to me ...
