Scent and body language

When a dog displays ‘good’ behaviour, completely according to the dogs’ standards and values, it may belong. What is ‘good’ or ‘bad’ depends on the social position (ranking position) that the dog has in its pack. For a dog with a higher position, from a dog’s point of view, other behaviour is considered as ‘good’ as for a dog with a lower position!


Each dog must behave according to the dogs’ standards and values and in a way that is in accordance with the ranking position that the dog has. (see; standards and values). If, according to these standards and values, the dog displays ‘bad’ behaviour, then (at least for a while) it may not belong to the group, the pack. As a social pack animal, any dog would want to prevent this at all costs!
