Oh, I dunno. I prefer my dogs to do what I want because they want to. Not because I am going to eat them if they do not. If the dog knows what you want them to do, understands your command, and the dog wants to please you, because you have made it fun, provided praise and treats, that is not a dictatorship, even if you get excellent results.
If you have to you a harsh, angry tone to ensure that your does exactly what you want them to do when you want them to do it, and they comply because they are fearful of you, which is NOT respect, that is a dictatorship.
So, no, I don't think training should be a dictatorship. I guess I prefer something like expected cooperation.
