As long as my dog isnt pulling on the leash and isnt 4 miles out in front if me then i have no problem with it. I think this alpha thing is... Ugh. Things have worked out well for me so far with that whole alpha mentality shuved in a dumpster somewhere.

I want my dogs to know i am safe, and if something is wrong or theyre scared ill be some hero of the day so, i walk them on a 6 foot leash, usually only letting them infront of me about 4, just so if something were to happen (random dog, person or car) i can quickly get my dog away and where my dog needs to go. Thats really the whole purpose of keeping your dog close, so theyre easier to control. None of that alpha bs ahah

I let charlie lead, he loves his walks, woke up at 3 am yesterday pawing at his leash. As long as his not pulling or trying to go some where iffy, like under a bush, we've good. He only really heels when he's tired, so I know its time to head home.
