- About this book
Several Anatolian breeders and owners endorse this book for helping the
new owner better understand how the owner and family's behavior can potentially create
behavioral problems. Foresight is a good preventative approach. The book presents
benelovent guidelines to leadership in light of the social context of dog and human
partners. While the book is not specific to Livestock Guardian Dogs (LGDs) or their
independent natures, the general problem solving and social leadership pointers give
helpful examples of the general gist of this approach.

Leader of the Pack
- When you're on a walk does your dog pull you?
Do you serve your dog dinner before you eat your own?
Does your dog sleep in bed with you?
Does your dog steal possessions and then play keep-away?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have
unknowingly handed over the title of "leader of the pack" to your dog. And it's
time to take it back. Experienced animal behaviorists Nancy Saer and Steve Duno
demonstrate that dogs, like their wolf cousins, are essentially pack animals and need to
establish dominance. In this practical, straightforward training book you will learn how
to take a firm lead and the specific steps required to eliminate the aggressive attitude
of your dog. No matter what kind of dog you have, the real life examples and simple,
nonconfrontational exercises in Leader of the Pack will help both of you
live happily ever after.
