Have you ever heard of the concept of the Super Alpha?

Quote: The concept of the super alpha is the result of thousands of generations of breeding where the dog has learned that while it can fully exercise an unrestrained social attitude towards other dogs, it can never show these same attempts to dominate against man. Sure, a large person can always give the dog a lesson by beating it into physical submission, but the heart of the super alpha concept is more subtle, relying on building and strengthening the relationship between man and dog that our ancestors worked so hard to create.

I invite you to discuss about the Super Alpha concept, and if you have more links and information about, it would be greatly appreciated.

I heard about the super alpha a few years ago, when I was very green in training concepts and so far I've assimilated it as the most natural thing of the world, but after then I've heard very little about the concept and would be interesting to hear what you think about.

The super alpha refers to the human, not to the dog.
