243: Embracing Your Own Authority


KMO welcomes Gary Borjesson to the C-Realm Podcast to talk about dogs, human/dog interactions and the hierarchical aspect of dog social behavior -- something which probably gets way too much play in our thinking about how we relate to dogs. Author Jean Donaldson warns us not to anthropomorphize our dogs and attribute human motivations and concerns to them, but Gary advises us not  to mistake dogs for wolves or underestimate the importance of humans to the thinking of dogs. Not even the great apes are as sensitive to the nuances of human gesture as dogs are. Getting along with humans is central to the dog's survival strategy, so the disposition of nearby humans is always high on any dog's list of concerns.
