Spit in their food.

When you think your dog is getting the upper hand, spit in their food. http://thebark.com/content/down-dominance Don't laugh , people actually believe this stuff. Another nail in the coffin of a theory that simply won't die. Three pages to this article. I like Trish's explanations as to why people believe in this stuff. But I still like what Jean Donaldson said to me, ..."Another obstacle is the seeming need people have to "dominate" something. It's almost stuff for a psychotherapist, this thirst to bend some creature to one's will. Maybe a self-esteem thing."
