  Dominant (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A cadential dominant chord followed by a tonic chord (the chord of the key of the piece) produces an authentic cadence.
Modulation into the dominant key often creates a sense of increased tension; as opposed to modulation into subdominant (fourth note of the scale), which creates a sense of musical relaxation (because the tonic key is the dominant of its subdominant key: in F major, the dominant is C).
The dominant may also be considered the result of a transformational operation applied to the tonic that most closely resembles the tonic by some clear-cut criteria such as common tones (Perle 1955 cited in Wilson 1992, p.37-38).

 MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia: Autosomal dominant
Dominant inheritance occurs when an abnormal gene from ONE parent is capable of causing disease even though the matching gene from the other parent is normal.
The abnormal gene dominates the outcome of the gene pair.
For an autosomal dominant disorder: If one parent has an abnormal gene and the other parent a normal gene, there is a 50% chance each child will inherit the abnormal gene, and therefore the dominant trait.

 American Dog Trainers Network -- Taming the Dominant Dog
If your dog is dominant or difficult to handle, it must be made clear to him that your furniture belongs to you, not your dog, which means he shouldn't be allowed on it.
Dominant dogs frequently control access-ways (such as doorways) throughout the house by laying across them, and expecting household members to walk around them.
If however, you have an especially dominant dog (or a dog who is aggressive towards you), it's important to note that lots of kissing, doting, petting, whining, and "baby talk", may be inadvertantly signaling to their dominant dog that they too believe that he's king of the household.

 Complementary Dominant/Submitter Relationships
In a mutual relationship something like dominant and submissive action is expressed typically by both parties but each on different types of issues, and authority is likewise distributed, yet love is usually the basis of the relationship.
(Domineering is something else, not part of authentic D/s.) There does seem to be a complex of behaviors that identifies a dominant, unlike the case of the supposed submissive traits.
Maybe it is because of the historical preference for, and deference to, male dominants, and lesser so for female dominants, as opposed to the general disrepute of submitters of all kinds.

 Dominant Dogs
A "dominant" dog may stare, bark, growl, snap, or even bite when you give him a command or ask him to give up a toy, treat, or resting place.
Sometimes even hugging, petting, or grooming can be interpreted as gestures of dominance and, therefore, provoke a growl or snap—and this is true even though your dog may still be very affectionate and often solicit petting and attention from you.
A position within the dominance hierarchy is established by each member of the group, based on the outcomes of interactions between themselves and the other pack members.

Because a dog is dominant, it does not necessarily follow that he is aggressive, not to the normal way of interpreting the word aggression, anyway.
A dominant dog can be dominated by a dog (or person) who is stronger physically or has a stronger personality than he has.
Dominance can be shown by little things such as demanding to be petted, trying to continually walk in front, etc. Aggression can be caused by many factors other than dominance: jealousy, over-protectiveness (of owner, pack, territory, food or self), fear, insecurity and sex can all cause aggression.

 Polycystic Kidney Disease   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The phrase "autosomal dominant" means that if one parent has the disease, there is a 50-percent chance that the disease will pass to a child (see Genetic Diseases).
In some rare cases, the cause of autosomal dominant PKD occurs spontaneously in the child soon after conception—in these cases the parents are not the source of this disease.
Although this test can detect the presence of the autosomal dominant PKD mutations before cysts develop, its usefulness is limited by two factors; it cannot predict the onset or ultimate severity of the disease, and no absolute cure is available to prevent the onset of the disease.
