Unlike people, dogs don't understand democracy. When it comes to what is acceptable behavior, they don't even get to vote. As far as they're concerned, you either serve, or you are served. Their behavior is more or less controlled by the alpha, the highest-ranking member of the pack. They may occasionally attempt to negotiate the terms to get access to things they want. But for the most part, they are quite content to accept the laws of the land, provided they're clearly and consistently explained and enforced.
