I have a question...

Prepare to hear me sound very uneducated, but what is the method of training that has to do with establishing dominance/being pack leader/etc officially called?

Maybe. Is he the one who invented it, or is he just reviving it or publicizing it?

I've seen a few of his videos before. They're pretty fun to watch, and he certainly has a way with dogs even though I don't entirely agree with what he does all of the time.

I use his methods. Well. Sort of. I am far more gentle. I no longer "pop" Koda's chokechain, I tap her lightly on the neck with my fingers. If that doesn't work I tap her rump with my foot. I always remain calm, assertive with her. We exercise and do discipline at the same time sometimes. And sometimes affection is mixed in.
I more or less take methods from a ton of different trainers and tailor them to work with her :3
