The dog is a social animal that, in the wild state, lives in a hierarchized pack. In the age of puberty, he naturally wants to define his place in his adoption family, his new "pack".
Within the group, the dominant dog has various prerogatives, that is, it can afford a large number of behaviors formally prohibited to the dominated.
The man does not know well the functioning of the packs and the communication man / dog is therefore not easy.
Many misunderstandings between the dog and its masters can result from a misinterpretation of the behavior of our pet and we can, by our own attitudes and reactions, falsely believe the dog that it can take the place of the pack leader In our family.
