One would probably want to re-define the old fascistic society system of the canines. Except maybe if one happens to belong to the set of (para)military humans, of course.

The canines enjoy a strictly hierarchical society, from the alpha couple at the top down to the lowest ranked dog at the bottom. Much like a Nazi world order, in fact. In the artificial flocks formed with humans, humans normally become the top dog. When a dog feel it has higher rank than a human it becomes dangerous and the owner will have it killed (``put to sleep'').
