In ancient Croton, the philosopher Pythagoras asked a man to stop beating a dog, claiming he could hear the voice of an old friend in its cries. This amazed the crowd watching him, as it appeared to prove his belief in reincarnation. Later, he cast out his disciple Alcmaeon for torturing a dog.

Guards in the Thirteen Colonies used dogs to guard treasure chests, as well as sniff out enemies like the Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton. Even when using Wolf Cloak in an alternate reality, guard dogs were still capable of detecting him. To combat this, Ratonhnhaké:ton could lure them away by using bait and killing them.
Dogs were trained to fight in contests against other dogs and for protection in London during the Victorian era. The prime minister Benjamin Disraeli and his wife Mary Anne had a pet dog named Desmond, whom they kept in a handbag. The Assassin Jacob Frye had to retrieve him after some thugs stole Mary Anne's handbag in Devil's Acre.
