A dog's mother begins training puppies from birth. She makes them wait for food; she controls when they play and how far they travel. Adult dogs need these. Dogs, like children, need boundaries. They see the world the same way we do. They aren't fuzzy, four-legged people. They are social, curious intelligent animals .

This is a nice side benefit of this exercise. You can further reinforce the Alpha 'food control' by keeping your hand on their bowl while they eat. You do NOT want to make mealtime stressful. So, you do not want to be scolding or correcting the dog during this process. Once the dog seems to really understand the 'sit for food' and is fully accepting of your hand on their food bowl, you can periodically pick up the food bowl while they are still eating.
Do not say anything, just stand up with the bowl in your hand and wait till they 'sit'. Then, immediately return the bowl to them to finish eating.
Remember to NOT make this process stressful, just normal and matter of fact.
This will reinforce your complete control of their being 'allowed' to eat, how and when. This translates in 'dogspeak' as the Alpha allowing the dog to eat. Additionally, this will help to offset or avoid the tendencies of many dogs for 'food guarding'. You will want to follow this same 'rump on the ground' procedure for any treats given throughout the day. You need to ensure that YOU, the Alpha always eats first. Many people will feed the dog right before they eat, so the dog will leave them alone.
Or, they will set the dog's bowl down and then sit down to eat themselves so the dog is eating while they eat. If the dog's normal feeding time is going to be at least two hours before you eat, you can go ahead and feed them This is enough time for them to separate them eating and you eating. It will not infringe on the concept of Alpha eating first.
If you plan on sharing a bit of your food with your dog, you will want to set aside their tidbits. If you randomly place the food down or disperse treats, you are as the Alpha sending mixed and confusing messages as to the Alpha governed hierarchy of the remaining pack members. This would be a prescription for disaster as the dogs will not know or understand their positions. The pack hierarchy will remain unsettled and 'up for grabs'. This scenario will ultimately lead to dog fights among these dogs as they try to sort out the pecking order among themselves.
In most cases you never use this or if you do, it is on a very infrequent basis.
This is ONLY intended as an enhancement, when necessary. When executed properly, the 'alpha roll' is an effective tool for reinforcing your Alpha position. Dogs reinforce their position over other dogs by rolling the other dogs onto their backs and pinning them there for a short time. Therefore, when we replicate these actions with the dogs It sends the same message. If your dog displays or engages in inappropriate behavior, you can roll them over on their back and hold them there for a short period of time.
This procedure is best served with little or no fanfare. Just pick the dog up, flip it gently, and calmly place them on their back. For larger dogs, you would need to have the dog go down and roll them over onto their back.
Consider that your strength as pack leader is enhanced by your firm control of situation NOT by being 'out of control'. They will indicate this by 'relaxing' their body.
Often times especially at first , the dogs will resist being placed in this 'most submissive' of all positions.
They may yelp, bark, curl lip, paw frantically, squirm with all their might, etc.
Therefore, be sure to have a firm hold on your dog. You may want to wear long sleeve shirts the first several times you do this to protect your arms from the frantic pawing and squirming.
Not all dogs will do this, many will submit almost immediately. You do NOT want to verbally reprimand your dog during this process. In fact, I prefer to say nothing during the entire Alpha Roll process. Actions speak louder than words.
You are placing the dogs in the most submissive and vulnerable of all positions. The dogs will naturally be emotionally stressed and physically vulnerable. DO NOT increase their anxiety by verbally reprimanding them or being physically harsh with them.
Once on their back, you hold the dog by placing your hand on their chest.
Having your fingers splayed open will give you the most body coverage and physical control. Also, the open hand and splayed fingers helps disperse the pressure evenly across their chest. WordPress Shortcode. Published in: Full Name Comment goes here.
