I love your blog!
I am writing because I am putting together a presentation on contemporary canine training theory and I recently read Dr. Cattet’s article “My journey towards becoming a dog trainer & behaviorist…” and saw that she practiced what most would consider a form of dominance theory training. My question is: where did this type of training originate? I’ve ad that it was popularized by the Monks of New Skete, but it seems to have older roots.
I also know of the study done by Dr. Frank Beach, who studied a small group of captive wolves, but again, this study seemed to confirm older practices rather than find new ones.
Any help you can give is greatly appreciated.
You might find some history and information about dog training in the following blog:
All my best with your presentation!
