Robert: It's simply false that 'big, strong alpha dogs need to get their ass kicked by the owner before the deference happens.'

That may be so, but it's your straw man. Cruelty makes dogs cruel. In my experience, one of the best ways to establish dominance over a dog is leash training. Keeping a rebellious dog on the short leash usually manages to convince it who's the boss.
