In the novel The Call of the Wild by Jack London, the reader follows what happens with a dog named Buck.  After Buck fights the lead dog Spitz to the death, Francois puts his dog Sol-leks in  position to lead the team.  When he does this, Buck simply shoves Sol-leks aside.  Buck continues to shove Sol-leks aside, in essence demanding the leadership of the team as his right.  Finally Francois gives in and puts Buck in the lead.  With his leadership, the team makes a fast run, and when they arrive at their destination, the team is sold.

When Sol-leks is put in lead, Buck attacks Sol-leks (although not enough for any serious injury), in order to show tha he wants to be the head, or dominant dog.
