A badly behaved dog can put a strain on the owner's relationship with the dog. Indeed it can be very stressful for both the human and animal. This is more so if young children are involved and their safety is compromised. An untrained canine's behavior when outside the home can be an embarrassment to the owner, leading to the animal being house-bound.
