You took the words right out of my mouth. Dogs are pack animals. Their survival depends on taking cues from the dominant animal,in this case, humans. Primates, on the other hand, function in social units but can survive by their individual wits and rely less on external cues from other primates or one another.

But wolves are pack animals, too, and the article said they don't have the same ability...maybe it's just that they don't recognize humans as pack leaders?
