2 GSDs and 1 Golden/BC/? Mix. Had Goldens before GSDs.

Puddi Golden/BC 20 months old
Whiskey GSD 18 months old

What do you mean by "alpha"?

Just my almost 5 month old GSD. And much to my husband's disappointment Kaiser recognizes me as Alpha and my husband as an equal. But we are working on this.

I have a BC Indy that is 6 and a BC mix King that is almost 9, Then Frank is 2 all neutered males.
I really dont' see where any of them are alpha, They play together and take toys away from each other, if they line up to get a drink it's just whoever happens to be there first.

frank(Rosehall's Duke of Hearts CD, BN, RN) gsd
indy (Indy Bluestorm CD, GN, RN,CGC) BC
king bc mix
Rowdy (MyHearts Red Treasure) Australian Shepherd

I have never had more than one dog at a time i always feared the idea but love to hear about others.

My Cattle Dog is usually the alpha,but that sometimes changes if I have a long term foster. It really just depends on who is here at the time.

lol i think most of us have a rescue cat running around somewhere in our house that we found, some cats are laid back some could put the fear of god into any person even lol

by alpha i just mean seems to have its way, first to take the toy it wants or even first to feed etc..

Besides my 2yr old GSD who is male
3 1/2 yr old Lab who is female
11 1/2 yr old Fox Terrier Mix who is female

Seniority rules in our house, and everyone gets along great. If anyone lays down the law it is the Terrier Mix.
Forgot to add the cat, female indoor cat, she is in her own little world. She thinks she is too good for the dogs.

karen, mom to:
ace-gsd (bi-color) 6/14/2010
mandy-yellow lab 1/31/2009
dixie-shep/lab 2/21/2013

baby-terrier mix (waiting at the bridge)

Failure *is* success, if you learn from it.

I have...a GSD, and then mixes:
F BC-Chow +? mix
F Chow-Spitz ? mix
F GSD mix
F Chow-Terv ? mix
M GSD-Lab ? mix (maybe some Chow and/or Rottie in there)
M GSD-BC ? mix (maybe some northern breed in there)
M Sheltie-Corgi (?) mix

I have a foster that is a 1.5 yo Lab/BC mix (?)
all speutered

So there are similarities - either in the herding breed or Chow type breeds. So they all have similar rules and types of behavior. They were also "admitted" into the pack based on a majority rule, based on how they could add to the group, and assimilate. Some needed to be here...or else, so luckily, that is the kind of dog who is admitted into Jeanspackistan. Things are given in order of seniority, and they so far, are okay with that (no prison riots).

I had a strong alpha, true alpha - the larger black/tan dog (Kramer) in my avatar. The smaller black/tan (Bruno) moved into and shared that with my GSD Bella, who is not a natural alpha and does not want to be an alpha, but she is a Queen Bee, and that works. I have more work to do in terms of leadership, and could never do it as well as Kramer, but I am trying.
