Non-sapient Beings are more likely to act upon instinct than acquired knowledge. They're often capable of learning, but they cannot display higher levels of thinking and questioning. If they operate in a society, their culture will probably be limited. Metacognition (i.e. "thinking about thinking") is still beyond them. Sapient races might domesticate them and employ them to perform certain tasks, but they will not be treated as equals. In real life, most animal species would fall under this category.
