Ethics & Human Canine Interactions


Dog Fighting

Canine Sports

In this course we give moral consideration to dogs exploring how human actions can benefit or harm them. Through this course we show that as sentient beings, dogs should be given more moral concern and highlight this through a variety of examples from dogs as pets to dogs used in sports and entertainment.
We have gathered academic & industry experts to create a set of lectures on the various aspects of canine ethics.
