I even had an owner tell me that her dog, a very compliant Golden, was "being dominant
Mystified, i went to her house, & the dog greeted me happily at the door, got a little excited when i came in, & jumped onto the sofa to greet me at a more convenient height, wagging & smiling. Her owner shouted, 'DOWN!', & the dog dropped like a rock into a down, grimacing apologetically at her angry tone.
"See!... what did i tell U?... DOWN, dammit!..." & the dog practically groveled into the cushions. "No! - Come here, DOWN!
", & the poor dog crawled over to her, belly-down on the sofa, in a GI-crawl - head & tail down, abjectly apologetic.
What a great story and what it has to do with the use of the word "no" is beyond me.
