The Alpha of a small community of animals in DogLife is the top dog of a hierarchy. They're the ones who are in charge, and they are the ones who call the shots. All of the other dogs underneath that Alpha submit to them, regardless if they're other dogs or not. If you're a dog, you might have several cats, or even a snake, which is beneath you. But you might not start as an Alpha of a hierarchy. Here's what you need to do to become the Alpha in DogLife. It all comes down to being aggressive with the other animals in the hierarchy. You can choose to go directly against the Alpha of the hierarchy or fight against the others. To investigate your hierarchy, tap on the hierarchy tab on the lower-right portion of your screen to bring it up. From here, you'll see where your sit in the hierarchy, who is the Alpha, and you'll be able to view how much respect you have for the other animals in the hierarchy. Finally, you can tap on any animal in the hierarchy and choose to attack them. By attacking them and forcing them to submit, you'll gain their respect. If they're low in the pecking order of the hierarchy, all you have to do is bark at them, and they'll back down, submitting to you.

You'll need to work your way up the hierarchy to become the Alpha, or you can go straight after the Alpha if you're strong enough. It helps if your animal is older, such as a three-year-old dog. However, you don't want to be too old. You just have to wait to work your way up and gain the respect of the other animals in the hierarchy. Without any respect, you won't go anywhere.
