Why I don’t believe in dominance theory of dog behaviour and training

‘Dominance theory’ stands for the theory which assumes that everything in dog behaviour and training can be explained in terms of ‘dominance’, and therefore assumes the way to train your dog is basically to over-dominate it.

Scientifically this ranks as antiquated bullshit, as much bullshit as the geocentric universe model, but it’s still believed at least partially by most dog owners, and TV companies still hire charlatans to make TV shows based on it.
