You misunderstood me. Not safe zone, just no prosecution of victims.

Sorry, really liked what you said it makes sense. I was just saying they shouldn't be in isolated areas. Did I see you do research into sex work?

Idk if I would do it tho.

We've been cloning animals since the 1970s through blastomere separation and 1997 through somatic cell nuclear transfer (remember Dolly?).

Cloning doesn't give the dogs the same personality for the same reasons that identical twins don't have the same personality. Having the exact same genetic makeup doesn't change all the external factors that go into forming a personality.

If something is wrong with the clone we could quite literally just check. The same way we check non-cloned dogs for illness.

But also, since the company is charging $50,000 I would hope they do quality control on their product. Only allowing the healthy embryos to grow.
But if you raise the new dog in the exact same settings growing up, would they end up having the same personality? I'm talking same people around it, same living conditions, etc.

No. Because even twins raised at the same time in the same environment arnt the same.

And if you raised the clone for example 15 years later in the same home it wouldn't be the same home.
People are older, people changed, some people are missing, there are new kids, the dog has other dog friends outside and other experiences. ( another vacation, another food poisoning, another car.. ) you can't relive the past.

Nobody knows everything about anything. Your favorite professor has a viewpoint and biases, as do the women who run the podcast he's describing.
The idea is to broaden your horizon a little bit and maybe consider some other viewpoints.
