While Snowball is busy trying to educate all of the animals,

Napoleon took no interest in Snowball's committees. He said that the education of the young was more important than anything that could be done for those who were already grown up.

Meanwhile, Napoleon took charge of nine puppies after they were weaned by Jessie and Bluebell. Napoleon educated them himself, secluding them from the rest of the animals. He would teach the pups the laws according to Napoleon, and they would eventually serve as his bodyguards.

Naturally, Napoleon's reasons were not based on his beliefs alone. He was already contending with Snowball for the leadership of the farm, and it was to his benefit to take a stand opposite of his comrade.
