so how far does the animal exploitation thing go, as far as vegan do’s and don’ts? I have a dog, rescued from an animal shelter 6 years ago. He’s great with the family but bites strangers and other dogs. When I take him out he wears a leash and is only let off when there’s no one around for him to bite. I tell him what to do i.e. come here, sit, stay, etc. He seems really happy to me. I wonder what the general opinion is on the leash and the training? I’m asking since the opinions I got on horse riding being exploitation, which fair enough, it is; although I don’t think every horse involved is terribly miserable for it. But what about the dog, does vegan values say I should let him run riot biting people and peeing in the house? I’m wondering where the line is drawn, the ‘me guy’ seems to think it’s a clear, bold line, but maybe it’s more fuzzy. While people continue to support the animal trade the abandoned ones will still have to be trained in their new homes.
