I WANNA BE AN ALPHA!
By sharing what I have learned from The Pack–Lessons taught to me by hundreds of Domesticated Dogs over the course of many years–I seek to provide the support, information, and tools needed to substantially increase the number of competent TwoLegged Alphas capable of ministering to the needs of multiple Canine Kids simultaneously. The ultimate goal of the I Wanna Be an Alpha! Project is simply to help boost Peoples’ canine confidence.
If you are truly interested in Learning howooo to be an effective Alpha to your Pups, then we should talk! If you’ve got the will, I’ve got the ways (and they do NOT include wishy-washy-ness, wussiness, or cell phones). The only prerequisite to attainment of Alpha Status is Clear Intent…you need to want to have well-behaved Dogs who enrich your Life, not exasperate it!
Dogs recognize leadership and insist upon it. They positively expect it; they thrive on it. They are confused without it. -Jeffrey Masson, Raising the Peaceable Kingdom
I, AlphaMom, am not the one to request assistance from if straightforward Sit-Stay-Down-Recall Training is your desired outcome. Doggy Robots are not my style! Because hundreds of Domesticated Dogs have been my Teachers, the way I have Learned to be, to co-exist with them, is very natural. Time and again I have seen howooo, when allowed to be themselves–with informed, supportive Guidance from their People–most Canine Kids thrive! Oftentimes the FourLeggeds show me that the ‘problem’ lies with the TwoLeggeds.
The ‘Training’ I am offering up is individual and Relationship-based. I realize that diverse environmental and situational circumstances exist in each of our Dens. We all have slightly different needs–as do our Pups! For sure my need for Self-control, my temper, my extreme emotions, my sensitivity to noise…all these factors figure into howooo I interact with my own Canine Companions as well as with the Pups left in my care. I am not made to be a pillar of calm in a stormy sea, so I have Learned to use my strengths to compensate for my flaws! And so can you. I am here and available to help you and your Canine Companions live together as naturally and pleasantly as possible. Before you know it you’ll be considerately cohabitating with, coming to a whole new level of understanding about, and finding you have acquired a new appreciation for your Domesticated Dogs.
My ulterior motive: Once you know howooo to effectively Be An Alpha to one Pup, you’ll be confident in your abilities and will be ready to invite more Domesticated Dogs into your Den, thereby saving more Lives–perhaps even by adopting Dynamic Doggy Duos through Rescue Groups! Your newfound confidence (your Alphabilities) will ripple out to others and join Pups and People together in Neighborhood Packs; it will help everyone to Be a Good Neighbor, and maybe, just maybe it will inspire you….
DO YOU WANT TO BE A ‘PLAN B’ for others? DO YOU WANT TO BE AN ALPHA FOR HIRE?
If you’ve read Fierce Love you know that being AlphaMom to an ever-changing Pack of Domesticated Dogs takes a lot of time and energy. It’s work! Caring for Pups keeps you honest and in the here-and-now; it makes you slow down, stop multitasking and Pay Attention! Although it may look like “the best job in The World”, the pay is low, the hours are long, and there’s a never-ending supply of Shit to deal with. Gee AlphaMom, that sounds like Fun…tell us more!
I, AlphaMom, can show you howooo to interact with and command the R-E-S-P-E-C-T of a Pack of Domesticated Dogs. I know that for a lot of TwoLeggeds the most daunting aspect of Domesticated PackLiving (right up there with Poop) is the actual number of Canine Kids involved. Fear not! I will lead by example, make suggestions, show alternatives for the expected, and help sort out the unexpected as we trek together along the Domesticated PackLiving Trail. Being Alpha to a Domesticated Pack is a vibrant, viable, deeply fulfilling way to live that’s within the reach of any PupPerson willing to Stop. Sit. And Focus.
Have you ever experienced something that filled you with as much Focused Intent and powerful Joy as the B-a-l-l incites in Bandit? I have! And it’s what I want to pass along to you if you share Bandit’s enthusiasm and driven purpose. Now all that’s needed is your desire to Playfully, innocently, and energetically Learn the finer points of being an effective AlphaMom or AlphaDad! If this idea gets your ears up and your head tilting inquisitively please contact me to get the B-a-l-l bouncing. Hahaha woof!
