A Renaissance Dog challenges the replacement of socialization with medication.

As a teacher, Regal Beagle employs a pedagogy of classical methods shaped around normative canine development. He incorporates the adage that “pups will be pups” even as he guides his students from their innocent juvenile misconduct toward responsible adult behavior.

The Harrier School District views traditional canine behavior as deviant and encourages teachers to promptly eradicate it with the drug Fatherlin.

Reg heterodoxically believes in teaching his students proper behavior rather than drugging them into passivity. For fatherless pups who engage in unsociable acts such as barking in class, Reg insists on caring discipline instead of pharmaceutical manipulation. But that violates the social control paradigms of the educational bureaucracy, and it dooms Reg’s career opportunities. So despite his holding a dogtorate, he’s relegated to teaching lower division.

With a resolve born of conviction and experience, Reg chooses to navigate his way around those practices that would harm his students while steadfastly guiding them toward responsible and natural canine ideals.
