There is significant difference between breeding knowledge index and health and management knowledge index of Group I to Group II at P<0.01 level and at P<0.05 level respectively. The rank order of knowledge index of overall 200 dog owners for feeding, housing, breeding, health and management practices are I, III, IV and II respectively and their consequent training need order was IV, II, I and III respectively.
