AVSAB - Use of Dominance Theory

The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) recently released a position statement on the use of "Dominance Theory in Behavior Modification of Animals".

AVSAB is concerned with the recent re-emergence of dominance theory and forcing dogs and other animals into submission as a means of preventing and correcting behavior problems.

AVSAB Position Statement - Puppy Socialization

The primary and most important time for puppy socialization is the first three months of life. During this time puppies should be exposed to as many new people, animals, stimuli and environments as can be achieved safely and without causing overstimulation manifested as excessive fear, withdrawal or avoidance behavior.
