==> The PRIME SECRET about dogs?
... is a secret with mammoth implications!
This MYGERMANSHEPHERD PERIODICAL is short.
Because of the significant but hidden insight it reveals about dogs! I don't want this to get lost in our typically comprehensive Periodicals.
Some readers may not immediately recognize the significance of THIS Secret about dogs, but I currently believe that this is THE PRIME SECRET to better understand dogs in general, and your dog in particular. Oh yes!
I am sure that you have never heard or read about this secret before, because no dog expert or dog trainer has published this, appears to even know this:
Let me explain:
Dogs struggle with their perceived role as 'Pack' leader. From their owner's behavior (that's you) the dog partly gets the impression that (s)he is the Pack leader: The dog can do what (s)he wants to get the owner's attention, and (s)he may even drag the owner on a leash behind.
Now, the conflict arises because naturally any dog struggles with this role! Every day, maybe every hour. Because, in countless situations the dog has to experience that (s)he is not the accepted Pack leader:
- The owner always commands the dog around, inside and outside of the house
- The owner decides over the walk by opening the door or leaving it closed
- The owner even puts a collar around the dog's neck, and keeps the dog on a leash!
- Worst of all, the owner determines when, what, and how much food the dog gets to eat!
All this, and much more, makes clear to the dog that the dog has to continue to prove its leader status in the Pack - like (s)he would do in the wild - until (s)he is the accepted Pack leader - or until (s)he is outperformed by another Pack leader.
I am sure that very, very few dog owners, dog experts, and dog trainers recognize that indeed dogs notice this conflict, and how much stress this conflict puts on the dog.

Because the two most fundamental genetic traits of the dog are affected:
I still have all reason to believe that this is THE PRIME SECRET to better understand dogs in general, and your German Shepherd in particular, because (s)he shares the house with you - or is at least close to you.
The consequence of this insight is that we all need to re-consider how we interact with our dog(s), so that we are and remain the accepted Pack leader.
