"Here's an interesting theory along the same lines. A Duke University professor argues that dogs/wolves domesticated humans rather than the other way around. Otherwise the humans would have killed off the wolves just like every other predator that competed with humans for food.

----------------

I have my own theory on what happened and it has to do with the fact that puppies like to eat human feces. They love it in fact and the more meat humans eat the more puppies like to eat human manure. I think young wolves followed humans to clean up after them so to speak and this was probably welcomed by human tribes of hunter gatherers. I think the domestication of the wolf can be directly attributed to the propensity of puppies like to eat human excrement.
