Behaviour is the action due to the relationship between the animal and its environment. Behavioural responses are adaptive for survival. The behaviour includes all processes by which an individual senses the external world and the internal state of its body and responds to the change which it perceives. The man and animal has passed through meandering paths. The living conditions and lifestyles is changing fast than ever. The families, which were once large, have now become unit families residing in apartments with minimum space for themselves and the companion animal. There are about 30 million dogs in India. The behaviour of the dog has been important to human civilization and domestication process for at least 12 000 years. With modern living, dogs are assuming a greater role in physical and mental wellbeing. Unfortunately, there is a great risk of developing behavioural problems in dogs in the stressful artificial environment of living in urban areas.
