What is an alpha dog?

Canines are not like other animals. In fact, dogs are some of the most social animals on the planet. Unlike the gorilla, which is the animal commonly associated with being alpha, dogs do not use intimidation or physical strength to assert their leadership position. Rather, they use psychological strength.

The alpha dogs (usually a pair, male and female) in a wild dog pack are responsible for their packs' survival. They maintain the social hierarchy within the pack for the greatest chance at survival.
