It has been totally proven that doing an alpha roll is the worst thing that you can do. You are setting yourself up to fail and the dog too. Those of us that believe in possitive reinforcement training all believe this is not the way to train a dog. Alpha rolling is very, very old school. And without starting another flurry of like/dislike, many of us do not approve of the "dog whispers" methods. However we all agree that dogs should not and should not aloud to be an "alpha" in the human pack. But there are better ways to teach behaviors.
In Sharron's post there was nothing said about the human not being the "alpha" in the pack, just that the "alpha roll" is not a good method of training
