Chill and WR
Guys im wondering about something I wonder if we could debate this ??

Years ago I had a rideback bitch .. beautiful dog , fantastic watchdog , great with my kids and ALL other animals .. she would mother kittens , chickens , hamsters etc ..BUT she took no nonsense from any other dog we had .. she wasnt vicious just a quiet disciplinarian. We never had any squabbles in the yrd with her around.

Now Monty my silly goofball boxer is exactly the same ... yesterday my baby chickens escaped and he was bringing them back to me .. all soggy from being in his mouth but alive and well ...he loves kittens and goes dilly with puppies ... also a mother hen type boy... he also takes no nonsense from the very tempremental Miki and stops any arguments immediately ... also not vicious ... good watchdog tho.

Are these two dogs typical of the Alpha temprement ??? watching wolves and how the leaders nuture the pack its so similar .

And yet I have had dogs that are simply dominant and a pain in the butt with it .. not this gentle type of leadership.

Its interesting I think ???
