==> The PRIME SECRET about dogs?

... is a secret with mammoth implications!

The #1 Secret about Dogs


Because of the significant but hidden insight it reveals about dogs! I don't want this to get lost in our typically lengthy 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 German Shepherd 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):







Suspense maxed?

All the common Dog Problems

and premature death

and even certain health issues

are the result of ...

==> the conflict the dog <==

==> is experiencing in its 'Pack' <==

arrow up


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 it 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.

This is what a Top dog expert says:

[wpsharely id="4431"]

Because the two most fundamental genetic traits of the dog are affected:

  • To secure food
  • To either be the Pack leader or not - every unclear position means struggle, fight, until the positions are clear

Both is a genetically driven quest of every dog (unless traumatized). So no way that the dog doesn't suffer a conflict!

The dog suffers a conflict for as long as it thinks (s)he is the Pack leader but also notices that this is contested by the dog owner (and all family/Pack members!) every day again. Every hour. Maybe every minute of being together!

This is what a Top dog expert says:
Find out more: Click to save vet cost, training cost, and your nerves!

This conflict will only end when the owner's behavior clearly shows the dog that (s)he is no longer the Pack leader. That the dog can now relax. Like in the wild, when a new, stronger dog takes over the leadership of the Pack.

Only at this point, all the other dogs submit to the new Alpha, the Pack leader. And only until the Pack leader shows first signs of weakness - at which point the dogs will again fight over the positions in the Pack!

On the other hand, almost every dog happily accepts a submissive position in the Pack - as long as there is a clear Pack leader - that always leaves some food behind. (Note the "as long as")

I currently 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.

The editions of the MYGERMANSHEPHERD PERIODICAL will help you with this mammoth task.


Checklist * (see note at the bottom)

  • THE PRIME SECRET about dogs is the conflict the dog is experiencing in its 'Pack'
  • The dog owner's behavior makes the dog think (s)he is the Pack leader, but the dog also notices that this is permanently contested by the dog owner (and all family/pack members!)
  • This conflict results in all the common dog problems, premature death, and even certain health issues
  • To eliminate this conflict, the dog owner's behavior must demonstrate to the dog that the dog no longer is the Pack leader
  • And the dog owner (and every family/pack member) must demonstrate this new behavior throughout the dog's entire life
  • A mammoth task! - Unless you apply a simple "system", like the one that underpins many future editions of the MYGERMANSHEPHERD PERIODICAL

    What I thought when I read about the PRIME SECRET about dogs:

    i thought it was a very good article, very informative !!


    This came at the perfect time and gives me some ideas of how to deal with my girl's jealousy issues. Introducing a new pup into the family with my 11 y/o GSD has been very challenging to say the least! I guess we become too comfortable with one dog and kind of let things slide without reinforcement when behaviors start to change. Time to Mom up again!


    Easy to lapse and give in to dogs nuzzling, etc. but as you point out, you are not doing dogs any favors, just causing it anxiety.


    Thanks for your help! I am having trouble getting our 7 month old gs to understand that he is not the pack leader but a member of the family. He is still trying to be the boss! but we are working on it


    hmmm. I never thought of that... way to go


    Thank you so very much for your help with Trooper. We have implemented your suggestions to the letter with slow but positive results. I have given our situation much thought and decided to add a little of my own insight to your plan and I am happy with the outcome. We are not there yet but good things are starting to happen . I try very hard to do my best for our family including Trooper and Raven and love them all very much. Again, thank you so much for your very expert help.


      You are welcome, Gail and Bill! I am glad that you are slowly getting Trooper's terrible aggression under control - one of the worst I had heard of.


    I found this article very good and can't wait to read more on this topic. My gsd will be 2 yrs old on New Years Day. He is very protective of us and I think he thinks he is the boss. He takes us for a walk and no matter how much I try I can't seem to get him to stop pulling. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.


      Colette, have you fully implemented the advice you got two weeks ago?
      I know, I know! The title of the Periodical was deceptive. But, fact is: Dog Meals - Meal Times - and Feeding Routine are the PRIME means to become your dog's accepted Pack leader. Yes indeed!

      So, the first thing for you to do in your situation (ie now): Pl go back to the Periodical from a fortnight ago, and fully implement the advice it holds. It's time-tested. It works! Do not believe me. Just try it out yourself. "The experience counts", as is the saying. :-)

      Next step (ie not now, rather tomorrow): GSD Leash Training Secrets - which you would get in 7 weeks, but since you need it sooner, here you go: [link deleted, because Colette didn't reply back]

      Third step: After 1 and 2, come back here and report how well it went once you implemented it all ;-)


    I have been trying to absorb every word in all your periodicals for the last month since I get my new 7 week old GS next Friday!! I am so excited, but with all the strict rules and constantly showing I am the pack leader, when can I love and cuddle and play? I am getting a little overwhelmed.....


      Nancy, I am excited for you too, a 7-week old pup is always a challenge! :-)

      Rules? No. I see it as a handful of basic habits towards our dogs. Like the habit to brush our teeth, or to drive on the right side of the road (if that is your place). And I suggest you see it as basic habits too, because that will ease your mind and make you relaxed - which is crucial when you get the puppy.

      It's basic habits, like say finding the gears in the car and distinguishing the accelerator from the brake pedal: Initially we have to learn it, yes (and we desire to!), but after two or three trips it becomes second nature to us, right? Same here.

      To help focus your mind on the right things when you get the puppy: Just apply the Puppy Training Essentials that you got a few weeks back - that's just two pages (2!). Can't get any shorter than that! Even the manual how to use a car is MUCH longer. And that although the car is DEAD, while the puppy is a highly lively little bundle of energy :-)

      "Love and cuddle and play"? Hugely important! All the time!
      Just so that YOU won't get all the problems millions of dog owners get when their small pup grows into an adult dog (as it will!), do the PLAY part right: It's not just "play", it's a crucial part of Socialization and Bite Inhibition training. So I'd make sure that I PLAY as described in the Puppy Development Guide.

      Pl share your photos and story then, I am excited too!


    Its so easy to slip up and skip a step or do a step wrong and all of a sudden its a habit that you didnt even know happened. Your GSD puppy training essentials is perfect to help avoid that. I have it on my refrigerator and consult it every day to keep myself on track with my now 6 mos. old. She is a challenge and that guide helps me stay a few steps ahead of her, and she is keeping pretty much in line finally. Thanks for that.


    Thanks for the info. I am trying very hard to get Kai to understand who is the Alpha. Since he is just 7 months, I know that I have to be consistant! My husband gets upset that Kai will not always "listen" to him when he tells him to do something and he has to have me tell Kai what to do. Since our 12 month old female always listens to him, my husband thinks that Kai is "spoiled and stubborn" because of the way I am teaching him...per your "Habits". I look forward to your next periodical. Sher


    I love this periodical. Not just because it is short and to the point but because since I have been reading and learning the information you are giving me, It is all very clear now. I can see my dogs, Tia and Sam challenging me frequently. And when I do not give in they are calmer and happier. I did not think about this affecting their health. The behavior I have the hardest time with is the "ignoring my dogs". It is not easy. Especially since it is only me and them in the house. I know its important and I'm working on being better at it but I find myself talking to them and touching them before I realize I'm doing it. I have really learned some valuable things by reading your books and periodicals. I also took advantage of "Doggy Dan's" $1.00 offer and was very glad I did. Thanks for all your help Tim. It is making a huge difference in our home and our lives.


      You are welcome Estella!

      Re/ "The behavior I have the hardest time with is the "ignoring my dogs". It is not easy":
      Yes, for any dog lover that's the hardest part of dog training (for non-dog-lovers it's the Recall) ;-)

      Here are a few more tips that may serve well:
      - Ignoring excessive Attention-Seeking is not disjunct, you can scale it
      - Say you can't avoid your dogs' presence in the same room, but you can demonstratively immerse in a good book
      - You sit down in a way that doesn't invite the dogs to jump up next to you, or to bury the head in your lap
      - When they won't leave you alone, you do what I always say: Use the outside of your arm in a gentle movement, like absentmindedly
      - If you say, immerse in a good book, you will do it absentmindedly anyway ;-)
      - Alternatively, you could listen to music through headphones
      - But then it must be the large over-ear ones, so that your dogs see the change in your state of mind
      - You can avoid patting them in that moment (even when you can't avoid that they nudge you)
      - But make sure you don't say anything (like "No, you've been naughty, now Tim says I should ignore your Attention-Seeking for a while")
      - Remember: No speaking, no looking, no touching in that moment
      - Alternatively, you could do some housework that doesn't give you a chance to interact with your dogs in that moment (ironing, washing-up, whatever).
      - Alternatively, you could visit the bathroom for that lengthy candle-light foam bath you always wanted to take...
      etc etc

      Hundreds of ways to ignore excessive Attention-Seeking without having time to feel bad about it. ;-)
      Remember: You are doing the BEST for your dogs in that moment.


    I know this might be unrelated to the topic right now, but I haven't been able to find a periodical on puppy biting. I have a male 4 month old and we have plenty of toys, and get him lots of exercise, and give plenty of love. Actually from reading above, maybe we need to do more ignoring. Anyway, I'm not sure if it's just something he will eventually out grow or not but we can hardly pet him without him biting. Not hard, just playing. Although he does kinda bite at my wife when she takes his leash out. Any advice?


      Sure Ray. Did you download the Puppy Training In A Nutshell the other day(s) when it was FREE this week? It's all in there.
      For this small problem you don't even need the Puppy 101. Even in the Nutshell guide you'll see it's not biting, but it does need to be dealt with immediately, the way described. If you don't, by the time you have an adult dog, you have a HUGE problem, and your once beloved puppy will end up in a shelter. All seen/heard thousands of times! :-(


    I must have missed that email unless it was just on the website. One other area I think I have messed up on is he loves to go fetch, but we have got in the habit of playing tug of war with the ball until I get it and throw it again. He loves that but now he won't learn how to drop the ball. I guess we need to have separate toys for each? Ball for drop it and squeaky toy for play fighting? Of course the other problem we have is that my son and I are better with him than wife. Hard to teach wife exact same things, but it's only been a couple months too.


      Okay Ray: Everyone needs to be positioned as accepted Pack leader, son, wife, and you. Otherwise you create Pack problems for your dog, as described above.

      Re/ the toy: You may not want to admit it, but what you describe tells me that *you* are not your dog's accepted Pack leader while you play (I don't know about the other family members, you haven't said). Because, if/when you are the accepted Pack leader, your dog will drop anything when you signal it - whether usual tug toy or fetch toy.

      Until you have established yourself as accepted Pack leader (and every family member has too!), using the Periodicals you received earlier, I would use a dedicated tug toy, and a separate dedicated fetch toy (this helps your dog to quicker understand the difference).


    I actually thought I had Puppy Training in a Nutshell but can't seem to find it. Is it still available? It is nice that it was pretty short since I don't have much time anymore with a 4 month old puppy and still all the other things to do. Wow, sure if life changing getting a GSD puppy. Awesome and tiring at the same time.


    This article was very informative. Good insight. Thanks


    Hey Tim,
    Well, it is going on 11 weeks with Heidi and I definitely see this is absolutely the truth for her. I have been able to work from home and have the time to stop and give her the attention she needs all day and night long. ( Ok, in reality, she probably wants more attention than I have time for.)
    With that being said, having read and continuing to read your periodicals and books, I find that she does test me, especially when I think she's got it or I'm doing this right, UGH...GSD's are super-smart!

    I am not one to give up and yes, she needs alot of time and attention, but I am diligent in my quest to let her know she is not the pack leader. My family is on board and we will continue to lead Heidi daily the way it will be in our household...she is not the one in charge.


    Thank you so much for these periodicals! I'm struggling over the pack leader position with my 12 month old Vincent. I didn't come across your site until a few months ago but it has helped me tremendously. Now to just get into the right habits. When I feed him I do follow the feeding routine but am having trouble ignoring him when I should be :( one thing I am struggling with is he always picks on my 8 year old female especially when I try to pay her attention. He's not aggressive or anything toward her or anyone else it's just that he starts messing with her or pushing her out of the way when I pet her. Is this something that will go away when I am accepted pack leader?


      Yes Kandice, it will. Nonetheless you should immediately, and every time, make clear that you do not accept his dominance, neither towards you nor the female dog: Stay calm (always first!), and then use the Collar Freeze - for as long as it takes.

      "I didn’t come across your site until a few months ago" - "Now to just get into the right habits" - still?? With our approach here, you ought to become accepted Pack leader within a few days, Kandice, not months. ;-)


        Long story short I had to work two jobs for awhile and my boyfriend was trying to train him his way :P which wasn't working. But no worries! I'm back to only one job now and trying to get into the habit of ignoring his attention seeking behavior. I always felt so guilty for being gone so much so when he would look at me with those big brown eyes it was so hard to ignore him! But in just the last 24 hours of ignoring his attention seeking I have noticed a difference :) today I took him to my parents house to visit and he behaved so much better than I expected. He wasn't properly socialized so he barked a bit when we first arrived but after a few minutes he was an angel :) thanks again for all of your help :) Vincent was a gift to me that I didn't want (I wasn't in a position to where I felt I could take the time to properly train and raise a puppy that would grow up to be as big as I am lol) but now I love him so much I wouldn't trade him for anything and I'm so grateful to you because now I feel like I have the confidence and knowledge to care for him like he deserves. Ill be on my kindle tomorrow reviewing all of your books :)


        Don't forget the TOP dog training tool is the Feeding Routine though. Unless your boyfriend lives with you permanently, I'd suggest not to let him feed Vincent (you need to be clearly positioned above him in your dog's view).

        Thanks Kandice :-)


    This is always a good reminder. For any problem, I have to remember to start back to the basics, and work on becoming the accepted pack leader. Thank you again for all this great advice.


      Ah there, you realized it yourself already. So why did I reply to your other comment....
      You want to become a site member Angela? You'd learn a LOT ;-)


    I notice when Heath is in the car with me and barks at people in the parking lot, it is much more efficient for me to stop saying 'No, No', and just take some calm breaths and calm myself as if totally relaxed and disinterested. Usually stops right away, but I have used a gentle yet firm collar freeze as described.
    Following these actions, a guy collected carts, we were parked right next to the cart coral, and Heath made a few muffled mini barks, then 3 people in the car on the other side of us, came chatting and laughing. They were right next to us, and Heath looked at them but remained calm! He is such a good boy. My Boxer isn't a barker, but very tense and hyper.

    Wish I would have known all this from when she was a pup. But I am applying feeding routine with both, she is improving, while Heath is doing splendidly at 6 mths. We have an active household with 7 people and the 2 dogs!


    Love your page!

    9 out of 10 times I can not access your page. The only site I have trouble with.



      "I can not access your page"
      Wow, that's so precise that it is helpful. ;-)

      If you can't be specific, unfortunately no one can help you, Peter.


    Great advice still working with my dog


    Tim, So glad I came across your periodicals and books. I gave an alleged professional dog trainer a large sum of $ to train my dog and was allowed visits once a week to learn how to work with the dog. Well, she told me to yell (to est leadership), redirecting me continually to "yank that chain (leash on choker) and it was not seeming to progress. I have since fired her and have been applying your secrets and tips. Now we both--dog and I are much happier. Thank you for your info,so,I,learned the relationship,is more important than the volume of commands!'


      Thanks for the informative feedback Linda! Sounds like that prof. trainer is stuck in the 1850ies. Hopefully you only paid her an 1850ies amount.


    I implemented the feeding routine about a month ago and am consistent with my responses (not letting her get away with more because of my issues, such as guilt for no morning walk etc) and several behaviors improved: The demanding attention, the food aggression with my other dogs, the pulling me down the sidewalk and recall.
    It's hard when you are tired or etc, but Tim's advice is the best I have come across and I researched/interviewed about 11 different trainers, plus authors. As a licensed therapist I noted many trainers are relying on "bully" behavior or fear tactics, or bribery with constant treats-- none of those are going to earn the respect and security that comes with an accepted pack leader.
    Thank you Tim for being a healthy, balanced resource!


      Thanks for your feedback Linda! :-)
      I only wish I were a healthy, balanced resource - I feel stressed every day!


    Hi Tim,
    My question has to do with the gesture eating routine "Who to involve in Gesture-Eating". But before I ask what you may think is a dumb question please read the reason why I ask.
    Back in May I adopted Ashley, an 8 years old GSD from a local GSD breeder. When the breeder gave her to me she was given to me at no charge just with the condition that Ashley would be happy in her new home and that my family would love her and take very good care of her, also that I would get her spayed plus show her proof of spaying. Before making this decision I had to make sure that this dog was not aggressive toward other dogs and children, I needed to make sure of this because I have an 8 year old grandchild that I babysit during the summer and also two other senior dogs, a 7 year old Beagle and an 11 year old Toy Poodle. The very nice lady GSD breeder agreed that Ashley did get a long well with other dogs and also enjoyed playing with her neighbors child. This made me very happy! We agreed to bring her home on a trial basis and slowly introduce her to our dogs and family. When we went to meet Ashley for the first time the nice lady breeder had my husband and I sit on the couch while she brought Ashley out on a leash from another room in her home. Wow she was so beautiful! she walked towards us wagging her tail and started licking us instantly, how could we not fall in love with her!? After bringing her home we kept her and the other dogs apart and only introduced her to them with a leash on her and for short periods of time. We did this for about a month each time the mingling would last a bit longer. I would even hook the leash to a piece of furniture and have her in the living room or in the kitchen, where ever I was going to be. My other dogs would always have run of the house. They seemed to be socializing with each other well, my Beagle really took a liking to her and she to him. Ashley had grown very attached to me and both my husband and I grew to love her even more. By the second month of having her with us we decided that since everybody was behaving welI, we would let her walk around the house freely but with the leash still hanging from her neck. Everybody was still behaving well (great!). With this said we made the decision to keep her and so we went ahead and had her spayed. Eventually during that second month I removed the leash from her neck. :-o
    One day I was in my back yard along with all three of my dogs and my neighbor came out of her house with her little Yorkie, we have a six foot tall fence that separate the two houses. Well the dogs all started barking at each other like crazy through the fence (this happens frequently) while the neighbor was screaming at her Yorkie to stop, I too was trying to recall my dogs back into the house with no luck. All of a sudden the toy poodle stopped his barking and froze, at the moment I didn't think much of it. I finally managed to get the dogs inside the house. The next evening while I was petting the poodle I felt something on his side by his rib cage, when I took a good look at it I saw what appeared to be four puncture marks with a tiny scab of dried blood on each one. They matched Ashley's' canines but I didn't see her do it so didn't want to believe it plus they seemed to be getting along fine! Still I wasn't going to let my guard down. After this incident my Toy Poodle kept his distance from her. But slowly started being himself again. One morning I did let my guard down, I went to the kitchen to get a cup of coffee with Ashley by my side, while seeing that the dogs were all in a playful mood I decide to sit at the table to sip my coffee and watch a bit of the morning news, I had my back turned to the dogs but I could still hear them playing. After about five minutes I got up and walked to the dogs, I see that my Toy Poodle was on the highest part of the couch (the part where you lean your back on) and Ashley looked like she was playfully trying to get to him. I thought this was so cute, all my dogs were getting along! Still after seeing this I would never leave the GSD and my other dogs in the same room together if I had to leave the house. And that morning I had to run some errands so I separated the small dogs into the living room and put Ashley in my bedroom with the door closed, that's where she would sleep with us, but her on her comfy dog bed. Upon returning home about 4 hours later I noticed that my Poodle was still on top of the couch and upon calling the two smaller dogs first to take them out to the back yard to relieve them selves only the Beagle came to the door while the Poodle just laid there on top of he couch looking at me but yet motionless, this was strange after all I was sure he needed to go too. I then walked to him to pick him up and carry him outside it was then that I saw that my poor little poodle had a large gash from his throat to the back of his neck! Four hours later! My poor dog. I rushed him to the vet where he had to have 22 stitches and two draining tubes put in. I forgot to mention that she also bit my grandson on the day that he came to meet her. Although I know that might have been my fault I should wave warned my grandson not to play run with her yet since she didn't quite know him yet. She grabbed the back of his shirt and broke his skin on his back. A second time was on a different day that he again came to visit, by now I didn't want to risk it so I put Ashley in my bedroom. After a bout 20 minutes of chatting with his parents and me forgetting to tell my grandchild that Ashley was in my room. So of course the child opens the door to my room to go in there and once realizing that Ashley was in there he got so scared that he ran out screaming, remember he had already been bitten once before! Ashley reacted to this and ran after him and bit him on his arm. If I wouldn't have loudly commanded her to stop I'm sure it would have been a lot worse. One of my daughter in laws came to visit too on a different occasion after nicely introducing Ashley to her while my daughter in law was sitting down, this is the way we introduce her to family. Everything was good until my daughter in law stood up to walk into another room all of a sudden Ashley started to growl at her than started to run towards her like she was about to bite the girls rump.
    Luckily Ashly stopped when I again loudly said NO!
    It was after she hurt my Poodle though that I sadly made the decision that I could not keep Ashley, I called back the previous owner (the nice lady breeder) and made arrangements to return her. :-(

    Since this happened I found your periodicals and have read several of your books. I wish I would have done things differently as per your methods, but she had already injured one of my dogs very badly, I felt that I could no longer keep her for the sake of my poor little senior poodle. However I still can't help but to feel guilty for returning her.

    I am now in the process of getting a puppy GSD from the same lady. She was born four weeks ago, I'm just waiting for her 8 week birthday to pick her up. I plan to socialize her just like you did with Miguel, with people and dogs.

    Now for my dumb question :-/
    In the gesture eating routine do you think that I can include my Toy Poodle so that the puppy will continue to see him as a pack leader along with me and my human family as the puppy continues to grow?

    P.S. Please excuse my horrible writing skills.


      Veronica, you pl need to be short and precise. Thousands of Freebie seekers cannot seriously expect that I have 5200 hours in a day, right? :shock:


    I'm sorry for that.
    In gesture eating do you think I can include my senior Toy Poodle so that a new GSD puppy can continue to see him as a pack leader along with me and my family as the puppy continues to grow?


      I think that would help the toy poodle to survive a boisterous GSD puppy, yes. If you don't get the pup to respect the toy poodle from the start, then from age 9 weeks or so he will run over the toy poodle. My new puppy had (and still has) little to zero understanding for how fragile small dogs are! :roll:


    I know all this, problem is getting my husband and son to be consistent. I spend 90% of the time with the dog, as he is not allowed upstairs where my husband's office and son's bedroom is. When they're home, they spend most of their time upstairs, and when they come down, they think it's ok to interact with Dex immediately, and I keep telling them they have to ignore him until he's calm, then wait 5 minutes. They also don't follow through with the feeding. Then they go back upstairs to leave me to deal with the fallout, with Dex wanting to play after they have him riled up, and me trying to establish pack leader.
