Q: How can I establish "alpha" status with my strong-willed Siberian Husky? A: Excellent question -- and the perfect opportunity to clear up misconceptions about dog behavior. As pack animals by nature, dogs see the world in terms of leaders and followers: Somebody's gotta be the boss here! That's why early training is so important. When puppies learn basic obedience commands and good manners, they understand that humans are the leaders of their new pack. Even as puppies, however, some dogs are more assertive than others.

Carol Prisant's thoughts keep going off-leash. Her new book, "Dog House, A Love Story" (Gotham Books, $22.50), is ostensibly about the many wonderful homes she's lived in alongside her many, many pets. But like her dogs, Prisant's memories have a tendency to get loose and wind up in strange places. As the book begins, the author's childhood canine encounters keep going sweetly sour thanks to her primly perfectionist mother. As Prisant points out, "Dogs don't do immaculate. " So newly married and living in Florida with her Cape Canaveral-based husband, Millard, Prisant decided her first dog (or as she puts it "pseudo-dog")

The Beatles may have sang that all you need is love, but when it comes to disobedient and dangerous mutts, Cesar Millan firmly yet calmly disagrees. "America loves dogs - like no other country in the world. They throw birthday parties for dogs," says Millan, who will present a dog-behavior seminar tomorrow afternoon at the Hippodrome Theatre. "Teaching America affection for a dog is not what I do. What I do teach is exercise, discipline and affection." If you go Cesar Millan will speak at 2 p.m. tomorrow at the Hippodrome Theatre, 12 N. Eutaw St. Call 410-837-7400 or go to france-merrickpac.

I want to talk about the hidden lives of my dogs.Until recently, I wasn't aware that my dogs had hidden lives. There were many times when I wasn't even sure they had brains.Then I got "The Hidden Life of Dogs," the best-selling book by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, who has some astounding insights into dog behavior. In an effort to find out what dogs do when they're on their own, she spent months following a husky named Misha as he roamed all over Cambridge, Mass. What Thomas discovered was that Misha, who at first appeared to be simply trotting around aimlessly, was in fact earning a degree from Harvard Business School.

A teacup poodle was euthanized after she was attacked in Owings Mills by a dog identified as a pit bull, a Baltimore County police spokeswoman said. The poodle, named Chloe, was on a leash, walking with her owner, in the 8000 block of Greenspring Valley Road when she was bitten by another dog named Max, said police spokeswoman Cathy Batton. The poodle's owner was bitten when she tried to break the two dogs apart, Batton said. She said the poodle's owner described the dog that attacked them as black lab pit bull mix. After the attack, the poodle's owner told police her dog had to be euthanized at an animal hospital due to injuries from that attack, Batton said.

The Maryland Court of Appeals recently issued an opinion in the case Tracey v. Solesky designating all dogs identified as pit bulls and pit bull mixes "inherently dangerous," and holding a dog's owner or anyone with the right to control the dog's presence on the property strictly liable for damages caused by a dog, purely by virtue of the dog's breed. This breed-specific rule is a massive shift in Maryland law, expected to bring about great expense to innocent parties and to keep good dogs in our already overpopulated shelters.
