Your dog does not have to eat after you!

The alpha male theory is a widely held belief that suggests that a dominant hierarchy must be established between owner and dog, and that the owner must eat before his dog to assert his leadership position. However, recent research has questioned this theory and has shown that establishing a relationship based on trust and cooperation is more beneficial for dogs and their owners. It is therefore no longer appropriate to have your dog eat after yourself. We explain to you why!

The alpha male theory is a widely held belief that suggests that a dominant hierarchy must be established between owner and dog, and that the owner must eat before his dog to assert his leadership position.
However, recent research has questioned this theory and demonstrated that establishing a relationship based on trust and cooperation is more beneficial for dogs and their owners.

The alpha male theory is largely based on studies done on captive wolves in the 1940s. However, subsequent research has shown that wild wolves do not operate according to a hierarchy based on dominance, but rather on a cooperative family structure. In addition, domestic dogs have evolved and distanced themselves from their wolf ancestors, making comparisons between the two species less relevant.

Recent studies have highlighted the importance of cooperation and trust between dogs and their owners. Rather than establishing a relationship based on dominance, it is better to adopt a positive and caring approach when training your dog. This strengthens the relationship and promotes clear and effective communication.

Why it is not necessary to have your dog eat after yourself

The idea of eating before your dog to establish dominance has no solid scientific basis. In reality, when you feed your dog doesn't affect your relationship with them. What's important is to provide your dog with a balanced and appropriate diet and to stick to a regular meal schedule.

In fact, it may be more convenient to feed your dog before your own meal to give them time to digest and rest while you eat.
