Dogs that hunt with there eyes (such as Irish wolf hounds) tend to do a lot better.
Wolf hounds were bred for going after wolves, so it makes sense that they wouldn't freak out as much as other dogs.

Competition. They also will kill coyotes on site.

Do the dogs know this? That dog is really well trained and it was freaking out with out some much as seeing a wolf. It was like the dog was possessed.
Yes They may have no first hand experience with wolves, but they know instinctually to be afraid. A dog can be trained to ignore a lot of outside influences when it is being given commands, but instincts can still take over, especially in a situation where the dog is not experienced at ignoring the presence of other predators.
