There is a difference between dominance and lack of training. And I don't mean lack in training in the sense that your dog isn't trained, but he hasn't been trained not to do these things. It's not a bad thing because its your dog, as long as the rules you do make are followed. For example some people teach their dog to speak others do not. I have never experienced a dog that was dominant over a human, don't even know if I believe it can happen. Will they test their boundaries? Yes. They are more of opportunists then anything, at least mine are.
