becoming alpha

This book was one of my Valentine's Day presents from my mom. It's not a dog training book but a dog psychology book. I've learned that my dear Stella thinks she is the pack leader. I'm trying take over the leadership role but it's proving to be more difficult that I thought it would be. I've gone too long thinking of her as a 4-legged human, my baby girl. A big No-No in Cesar's Way. I don't like to tell her "NO" 193854387 times a day. It comes to a point when I'm just like, ok, fine, do whatever you want. So now I'm trying to break that habit. So even if I've had a 12+ hour day and just want to relax on the couch and unwind, I still have to have a "calm-assertive energy" and make sure she's behaving at all times. EXHAUSTING.
