A pack is a canine conspecific social unit. Not all dogs, particularly smaller dogs like the Red fox, establish packs. The size of a pack and its members’ social interactions vary from species to species. In a pack, social structure is crucial. Every member of the pack will be assigned a position and a role. A breeding couple that consists of the alpha male and alpha female control canine packs.

In the hierarchy of their packs, wolves are noted for forging affiliative ties. Packs of wolves are known to interact and play with one another. It has been noted that wolves do not play at random; rather, it may be a reflection of the dynamics within the pack, including any rivalry, cooperation, or cooperation.

Around breeding season, tensions are shown to rise as the pros and cons are evaluated against one another. Although a tiny proportion of male wolves will initiate affiliative contacts, female wolves are typically the ones who start them. No affiliative interaction targets the omega male.

Researchers have distinguished between the most dominant and the most subservient wolves in various investigations. It was noted that the dominant wolf slept for shorter periods of time and showed more behavioral stress than the omega wolf.
