This all creatures animal exploitation photo gallery about dogs is being presented to show the public the difference between the cute animals we see in advertising and picture in our minds and the reality that exists in the world.
(Dog Exploitation - Sport - 04) There has been a lot of "glamour" associated with mushing and dog sled racing, particularly with the Iditarod. But the glamour is for some humans and not for the dogs. The dogs may seem eager, since being faced with a choice between the boredom of the compound or pulling a sled, the dogs may choose to pull the sled; but that is really the result of the psychology of raising sled dogs. All the pent-up energy and boredom is channeled into sled pulling; in other words, the dogs are being manipulated. Do not support these inhumane practices. Dogs should not be USED. They should be loved.

If these reality photos are disturbing, and you don't believe such things should be done to dogs, then set the proper example by not doing such things to any animals, and by not supporting those who do. Stop eating or wearing animal products or supporting any activity that exploits animals, and tell others why you stopped.
