First I would recommend you toss out the whole "pack order" baloney. People are not dogs and dogs are not people. People cannot be part of a dog pack. We do not have the abilities to communicate the way dogs do. We can't curl our lips, we can't raise the hair on our backs (not that I HAVE any hair on my back ), we can't move our ears and we can't possibly convey the amount of information dogs do with just their eyes.
I would think in terms of having an obedient dog - period.
Having said that, I highly recommend Suzanne Clothier's book "Bones Would Rain From the Sky".
Also, read all the articles on her website: Suzanne Clothier | Relationship Centered Dog Training

My breeder recommended this book while I was waiting for my pup...I read it while I waited, then read it again! It may not address everything you need, but covers so much, and worth every penny.

A good book on training, or website
I just started looking into breeders, and in the meantime I wanted to start reading up on early training. Information on how to establish a proper pack order in the house, house training and early basic obedience.
Does anyone have a book or website they would recommend?
