Here is a start for your studies.

Sorry, but you are not entirely correct. While there is an alpha male and female in the pack to describe the pair who mate, the alpha male is dominant over the whole pack.

From the National Wildlife Federation:

"Within the pack hierarchy, there are male and female hierarchies. The alpha male is dominant over the entire pack, both males and females. The alpha female and male are the only ones that breed."

Secondly, my analogy is perfect.
