This Thesis draws a parallel between the lives of humans and dogs. Humans are conditioned to behave and act certain ways just as dogs are conditioned to behave and perform certain acts. Humans have been conditioned to rely on technology, while dogs have been conditioned to rely on humans. However, hunter-‐gatherer groups such as the Hadza do not rely on technology and are conditioned merely to survive. The Hadza have not significantly changed their ways for thousands of years and more closely relate to the wolf, not in the sense that they are hostile or vicious. This thesis also compares the way most humans live today, and the way the Hadza live. Dogs are the chosen vehicle for this comparison because of the relationship between humans and dogs.
Keywords: dogs relationship to humans, conditioning, human condition, social structures
