I have sat back and read everything, and IMO you don't want to learn something other than what you have been told to know.
There are no ranks in households when it comes to dogs, just dogs pushed over threshold and lashing out, or dogs with bad habits/behaviors which need some working on. In your example of your female 'putting the other dog on its back' during a hunt, your dog is resource guarding the hunted, or is so over threshold she will attack anything in her way.
I suggest learning some up to date ideas and methods before suggesting things to people. You did suggest it, and you did suggest the dog is dominating, and when provided links to show otherwise you got uber defensive instead of stepping back and reading it. I understand why you would become defensive, as I was in your shoes when I started here. I used corrections and believed in dominance/pack issues in every setting, then I really read what I was provided and learned a lot.
