Wow, that really took me by surprise! I had to watch it atleast 5 times to believe she said it. I didn't think Victoria believed in the "Pack Leader" mentality? Am I missing anything here? :shock:

Is it perhaps that this is an older show? I'm just very confused haha :lol:

This video isn't loading on my end, so I don't know exactly what you are referring to. However, I can say that I know a LOT of force free trainers who call a human and their dogs a "pack" meaning a family. That doesn't mean they believe in the dominance theory and aversive based training techniques. As for "leader", it is important to be your dogs leader- a leader who is gentle and takes care of them but does not push them around. It doesn't mean you have to be the alpha.
I know that was a shortwinded reply, but I hope it made sense.

It's a very old show - she doesn't use that term anymore. :)
