The Alpha-Leader Position: Question 27
Which behavior or behaviors are an indication that your dog thinks that he has the food rights of the Alpha leader?
He may beg at the table becoming increasingly persistent or aggressive if you do not slip him some food, he may steal food from the tables or the counters or try to take food from your plate if you are eating in a place where your dog can reach the food.
He becomes possessive of his own dog food and when you approach him or try to take his bowl of food away while he is eating, he will become aggressive towards you, growling, barking or biting at you until you withdraw.
When you show the dog that you have a treat and you do not give him any command, your dog immediately performs a trick or basic obedience exercise to signal to you to give him the food he desires.
All of the answers are correct.
