The thinking among dogs is communist... everything is done to be part of the group. There may be alpha characters but they only get that position by the group choosing them to take on that role. Cat society is one where each individual is the most important person in the society in the eyes of that individual. The leader assumes the role and only keeps it based on the personality of the leader being too strong for other individuals to dare try and take over. Ferrets have no leader but stash their own supplies and try and make local friends who they know will not steal from them. Ferret society is the anarchist one I need to look at closer to find a model that may work for humans.
