What Labrador Training Can Say About Submission

>> 9/22/09

While the Labrador dog breed is known for being among the most emotionally stable and kindest dogs for miles around, some Labrador owners can't help reacting to what seem to be submission gone too far. For example, a certain dog is a winner when it comes to being friendly and at the same time, not scared or intimidated by other dogs. But what needs to be done if this same dog allows other dogs to dominate it, or hump/mount it (the dominate type)? Furthermore, let's say that this dog has no aggression issues and is very docile.

To give a constructive response according to Labrador training standards to this concern, it is good to begin with what submission is essentially among dogs. To them, submission involves greeting humans and other pets with tails tucked, quaking bodies, and urine on them, signs that the dog is afraid.

What's more, some owners only become convinced that their dog is no shrimp when the fuss-free, happy-go-lucky pet a little bit more time. Then one day, it suddenly responds to a casual nip from another dog by jumping to its feet, teeth flashing, growling, and giving all the signs of annoyance at unfair play.

So, the bottom line about the dog personality we were discussing at the start is that it may be actually just plain and simply too cheerful and optimistic to worry how to assert its own dominance, but will actually show its mettle if rudely asked to do so!

Other dog owners answer in a related way, by saying that if the dog is being actively socializing with other dogs that dominate it instead, dogs can actually work out the matter on their own. Indeed, sometimes it will take a few months of having another dog with the submissive dog every single day before the latter learns a helpful amount of assertiveness and stands up for itself. But even then, the submissive dog will have learned a thing or two how to drop hints - a little growl or even just moving to a more dominant position.

Before we end, it seems that labs with this kind of dispositions also happen to earn a considerable amount of compliments since, while they are not perfect despite Labrador training, owners with the most behaved dogs never think twice about letting their dogs approach the lab in question. Grandparents will also want to have them since the dog is sure to withstand the pushing, piggyback riding, pulling, and the yelling.
