Abstract

Sponsored by the Foundation for the Wellbeing of the Dog in Switzerland, this project evaluated societal concerns over dog breeding and ownership and methods to address them. By comparing laws, interviews and interest groups' published materials from Switzerland and the United States, we determined that the two countries are substantially the same, with the exception of conflict versus concordance-based government. We further conclude that in both countries concerns are due primarily to a subjective view of dogs' place in society.
