I would agree with almost everything you suggested accept the alpha role. This is not something I would ever recommend to someone simply because the dog may have the upper hand in this situation if the person is small in stature or in experienced. Only an experienced dog handler should role a dog. I did it with my AB when he was about a year old and the first couple of times it got ugly, now it's not necessary. Just my 2 cents :)

When your dog is acting aggressive you physically force him or her onto their back with a forearm across the neck and hold it until they submit willingly. Not always easily accomplished and can be dangerous. Don't recommend it in most cases.
