I watched the video ... twice, I've read most of the comments, and haven't found the question I want to ask ...
My last dog was an alpha female ... a beautiful creature to watch. Always gave perfect corrections to other dogs, taught puppies the rules, and was an amazing mediator within a pack of dogs. Seriously, it was INCREDIBLE to watch her to her "role" in life. I rarely had to intervene.
I mention this because she taught me A LOT about dog behaviour - and I watched her constantly (she probably thought I was stalking her LOL). Anyway, I digress.
I moved in with a friend of mine for a year and she had three male dogs. Abby was the only female. They got along very well (had known each other all their lives).
Abby "corrected" them when they charged the front door. The door bell rang, her three dogs charged the door and she'd slipped through them and literally stared them down, and they backed off and went into the hallway. Do you know how many times she corrected this behaviour? TWICE ... they never did it a third time.
Supper time came. All four dogs were raw fed. They had their own bowls in the kitchen, in separate corners. Abby was still eating, and the bernese was done and he ambled over to see if Abby would share. As he approached, she turned her head, let out a low growl, and curled her lip. He backed off INSTANTLY and went back to see if there was anything else in his bowl. He NEVER did it again. And the other two dogs never tried it.
MY understanding is that a true alpha (of which there really aren't that many ... dominant and alpha are constantly interchanged and misunderstood) doesn't need to CONSTANTLY correct a dog. So my question is this ... why did your dog have to constantly snap at the other dog to "remind" them of their place?
I get that some dogs will NOT back down to another dog correcting them. One of my friend's has a dog that is a social moron ... not a clue how to greet other dogs. She ran full force into Abby, and Abby whipped around, stared at her, and curled her lip at her. The other dog? Just jumped all over her again. Abby backed off a bit, and let the dog be a twit, and then the third time it came at her, she let out a low growl and snapped the air. The dog stopped and then LUNGED at Abby. I got the other dog away from Abby - who by the way, did NOTHING ... because she knew I was her back up. To me, that's an alpha. My dog knew that I would let her do what was appropriate ... her role in life, but that I always had her back, and would step in if needed. I only ever had to twice ... and that dog was one of the times.
I've worked with loads of dogs and I've watched Abby do her 'corrections' and she RARELY had to correct the same dog more than once. In the video it appears that your dog is correcting the other dog constantly ... I don't get it ... For me that's not dominance / submission but the "correcting" dog is being an "a$$"
