The dogs created fear in all of the animals, making it easy for Napoleon to take over the leadership of Animal Farm.

The dogs would also prevent rebellion against Napoleon by letting out “menacing,” growls every time an animal would question Napoleon’s authority any further. Though later in the chapter, Napoleon orders his dogs to slaughter any of the animals who had previously questioned his authority on Animal Farm.
