Okay so I'm a professional dog walker, and have been self teaching myself to train dogs to make my job easier. My dog a 2 year husky kept getting aggressive with the dogs I walked trying to assume dominance. So I talked to a professional trainer and they said I should walk in the lead when walking her and she following to be the alpha and aggressiveness would stop. So I ask her a little about it that she would give me for free, and figured out the rest on how to train my dog on my own. So here's the good news, she isn't trying to claim dominance anymore, and she doesn't pull and is calm on the walk and well behaved. The down side, she is a totally different dog now, instead of having so much energy she need more then four hours of walks a day like she did for the last year and a half, three is now more then enough. And when she isn't walking she just lies there and doesn't play with her toys, or want to play with me anymore. I used to grab her face and shake it a little and that would get her all riled up and she would play, now she just lies there and takes it. It's like by assuming rule of the alpha in our relationship I broke her wild spirit. My parents had a golden retriever who didn't get this calm until she was six, my dog is a husky and she is 2. Then sometimes wild and crazy husky is why I got her, and now she won't even run wildly around the park when I let her off leash. Is this temporary, or is it the price I pay for training her to not try to be dominant?
