No Way To Win
The basic presuppositions of the Harmony programme lie in the
idea that a war or a competition produces losers, not winners.
After using "Dominance Reduction Programmes" for some time, it
became apparent that in some cases these could be highly destructive to
relationships between dogs and owners, and could lead to the presenting
behaviour and training problems escalating, rather than being treated
Dominance Reduction is inherently based on the underlying idea
that there is an ongoing power struggle between a dog and their owners, and that
in order to "win" the owner must engage in partaking of these power struggles
AND on the same level as the dog - the owner, in other words, must stop being a
sentient human being, socialised into a system of behaviour where one family
member takes care of another and forms intimate bonds, and move instead into a
mindset where the family becomes "a pack of wolves" - a "dog eat dog" universe.
For some people, this idea is the very anathema to what their
ideal of a relationship with a companion animal should constitute.
For some people, this idea doesn't make any sense and runs
contrary to their every fibre of being.
And for some dogs, this "relationship as a war with the ultimate
prize being power" approach to behaviour modification becomes indeed a
declaration of war, and especially aggression related problems can escalate
The Harmony Programme turns the Dominance Reduction Programme
inside out and instead, constitutes a set of treatment strategies for behaviour
- remove conflict, instead of adding conflict;
- create a more predictable environment, instead of making
the dog's environment ever more scary and unpredictable;
- remove power struggles in every aspect of the dog/owner
- foster understanding, compromise and connection between dog
- work to increase both the owners and the dogs confidence
and self esteem.
- create a sanctuary space of love, trust and understanding
in which behaviour problems may heal rapidly.
