Abstract

Dogs should not be bred in the way they are bred now. The ethical problems with the breeding industry are vast. While there are several issues within the breeding industry, this paper focuses on the dog breeding industry and its effects that the industry has on the dogs. Ethical arguments are formed through the lenses of Kant, Descartes, and Darwin. Outlined are reasons why the way dog breeding is done is unethical. The way in which the animals are treated, the negative effects on those animals, and the exploration into the violations to those animals' rights are examined. The goal is to inform the general public of the unethical practices behind the breeding of their beloved family dogs. This paper is to act as an eye-opening argument to the reader, so that they no longer buy dogs from pet stores, but adopt instead.
