Part Wild is an excellent book which I have recommended many times.
this "alpha" thing -- do yourself a favour and read this book by Wilde http://www.amazon.ca/Wolfdogs-A-Z-Behavior-Training-More/dp/096677261X/ref=pd_sim_b_1 . read the few pages offered on the site's "look inside" feature .
Recommended by Ian Dunbar , and behavioural specialists from Indiana's Wolf Park.
At the very very least skim down to the section of alpha concept, which most interpret as some crude linear dictatorial rank power struggle . That can get you into one heap of trouble . Danger to yourself , and the creature , which may be so messed up that it ends up in a rehab centre or worse , life ended abruptly.
The relationship needs to be co-operative and communicative .
I added this book and Wilde's Living with Wolfdogs to my library , a Christmas gift that I have not had the chance to enjoy yet.
Years ago attended seminars given by Wolf Park behavioural specialist and founder Klinghammer , and by behavioural specialists from the University of Guelph Wolf Park
