PACK STRUCTURE


What is "PACK STRUCTURE" ?? Most of you may have never heard this term despite you having a dog in your home for a long time. Now “PACK” in wolves is similar to what we call "FAMILY" in humans.


While we are discussing about the “PACK” we need to understand that this comes from Wolves. Now some of you may have started to think “Wolves”?? Why do we have to be concerned on something about wolves, we are here for Dog relative information, so why wolves huh. Well, the answer is dogs are decedents of gray wolf and were first domesticated about 1, 30,000 years ago. Even after years of domestication dogs still have the same genetic drives as wolves, one cannot change or underestimate this genetic drives in dogs. So the bottom line is before you want to know about dogs you need to know about their ancestor’s characteristic. Let’s talk about it……….


Pack sizes vary , usually most packs have 5 to 7 members some may include as many as 12 or more but in order to make a wolf pack it has to be a minimum of 3 members in that pack, each individual has its own place in that social order. A wolf pack always has one Alfa Male & one Alfa Female (often called Pack leader) followed by the next ranks which are Beta and Omega, the ranking within the pack of each member is called “STRUCTURE”. In human world we also have a particular rank within our family but our age makes the rank amongst us. We respect the members who are elder than us; the age of each person builds the rank within the family. Now in a wolf pack it doesn’t happen this way ,the puppies born with a single litter and after 15 or 20 days when their important senses starts working(eyes ,ears &nose)they start to explore things around them, by this time they start to establish their rank with each other(litter mates) by playing rough wrestling ,fighting and tug of war . The superiority might be physically-larger size, greater strength or dominant personality. The Alfa male & Alfa female enforce all the laws within the pack like; when to fight, who to fight, when & where to hunt, who eats first etc. The Alfa wolves get the best spots for sleeping, best food for eating, Alfa decides when to play, when to groom everything, an Alfa/Pack leader enforces all rules & limitations and if any member of the pack breaks the rule they will be dealt with in a firm and appropriate manner or if any of them refuse to follow pack rules they will be driven out of the pack for pack stability & Manners. The Alfa / pack leader is always calm, assertive and firm, they never get mad or angry on their pack members, they are not bullies, a pack leader enforces a set of rules which the lower members abide to follow gladly and the members know that the leader will take care of threats and protect them when needed. So in one word a Pack leader is the one who controls every aspect of their (pack member) life.


Now I hope you have a clear understanding about pack structure. So this is your responsibility to be a pack leader of your dog/puppy by controlling every aspect of their lives after you bring them home but in a fair manner.

 

BONDING


Bonding with your puppy is a matter of a quality time and commitment you have set for its entire life. When you bring a puppy home you cannot just let him/her roam around your household to make decisions for its own (what I generally see in every home when I visit for training or for any other reasons).People who think that a puppy should run around the house unsupervised from day one, are not good pack leaders and they usually (not always) end up with a dominant dog later. You should be the one to control every part of its life and by that I mean you should use a dog crate or an ex-pen.


The puppy should be in crate or ex-pen when you are busy doing your stuffs or run your errands. Dog crates are also wonderful tool s for house breaking and potty training which I will discuss later in our Potty & Pee Training page in my website on training forum categories. When you are free and can supervise the puppy, let it out side of the crate or ex-pen with a light weighted puppy collar & leash. You cannot keep a puppy inside a crate for more than two hours as they need to play, they need to interact with new pack members (your family members) and they need to do their business too(potty & pee) but while doing all these he/she should be supervised by you as a pack leader. You should take care of its feeding, grooming, exercising etc. When you are free spending some quality time with the pup and play (not force play) little bit is also a big part of bonding with your dog. They don’t know how to react with human pack, they try to play the same way they played with their litter mates by growling, chewing, biting. Its you who is liable to teach the pup rules of your home and how to react but certainly in a fair manner .Never shout or  hit your puppy. If the pup is over reacting out side of the crate just put him inside and let him/her out again when he/she is calm in side the crate.If you maintain and follow all these guidelines you are going to have a dog that not only loves but also respects you and obeys you.You can ask your queries by click on "CLICK ME" option given below if you have any.
