Hmmmm. I could be totally off base on this, but it sounds like you are the alpha - Derek respects you and does what you say. I don't think he thinks of Craig the same way. Our German Shepherd saw me as the leader of the pack. He did what my husband said most of the time, but if he was keeping Wolfgang away from me because I couldn't have a puppy underfoot, Wolfgang challenged him by growling at him. BIG time no no. Mark got right after him immediately and I came to see what what going on. I made sure to back my husband up and Wolfgang got the message. When I had my boys, we had to make sure that he understood that he was at the bottom of the pack. Don't get me wrong, we love him dearly and he is definitely a part of our family, but he knows that he answers to all of us. The boys can take anything out of his mouth, even a steak bone and he won't do anything but look up at you and hope you give it back to him. I think Craig needs to establish his dominance and all of this will be resolved. I hope the book helps you like it did me. Good luck and keep us posted!!
