I still believe that dogs are a 'pack' animal. They might not want dominance but they do need direction and a 'job'. Now this I also believe is also only true for some breeds. Some breeds need to have a job to be happy. B's were around to help the Pygmy's flush game out of the bush….and they are still a Pariah dog. I think this still gives them the lineage that is closer to a 'wolf'. Domesticated dogs look toward their humans to give them direction and a purpose. Pariah dogs are still a type that need to think for themselves. I don't know if anyone will understand what I am trying to say because this probably isn't getting my opinion across clearly.
