Get lots of fur by making a open area (I used dino gates) and leave 3 high lvl (150+) on aggressive and all following a different dino on passive (I use a low lvl saber). Then leave a 4th wolf on aggresive but not following anything. It will be the one that'll collect the fur. Drop in mamoths, rhinos, wolves and they'll kill it no problem. I do this all the time to get meat quickly too.
If you tame more than one dire wolf,you can use their pack skill.You have to ride on your best dire wolf then use the skill.It is called Pack Leader for the leader and Pack Mate for the other dire wolves.
Getting a TLC patch in March 2018 to add howl that will initiate the pack bonus for 5 minutes, will be able to sniff out players or creatures with less than 50% health, and will be able to detect explorer notes.
