For all of the speculation about adult wolves approaching camps for scraps, the most likely way that humans would first acquire wolves would be as puppies. A local wolf pack would be a known threat, with individual wolves probably recognizable to the humans in the competing "pack" / tribe. After a battle with a wolf pack, maybe the humans would go to the wolves dens, which could very well be known to them, and instead of killing the puppies keep them and raise them. If this results in a stable population of wolves who are acclimated to humans, then sooner or later the mutation for this special ability would be selected if it is present in the population. Or if it then randomly occurs as a mutation, again it would be selected. Dogs that remain appealing as adults would get better treatment and survive more often.
