Far as I can tell, half of being an alpha is acting like an alpha. Body posture and confidence have a lot to do with it. For starters, give commands in a calm tone of voice that suggests that you expect obedience.

Some other things I do is I restrict my dog from furniture (alphas reserve the best places for themselves) and I make Redhead lie down while I and my guests eat. Only after we have eaten does Redhead have the chance to earn some food by doing a few tricks (alphas eat first and take the best for themselves).

Also look up Nothing In Life Is Free (NILIF) and use it.

You are going to have to learn to be merciless with Deuce and he is going to have to learn to respect you. This does not mean cruelty, this does not mean to beat him, but you cannot give in or Deuce will take over. And if he does manage to take over, it is dangerous for him and others.
