6) Why are dogs considered the property of the owner? “The dog is the property of the owner but he does not own it, however, it can not be kept without owner consent. A private person or corporation may not take or leave dog in a way or area it is dangerous, unsafe or not wanted by the owner. The dog is not to be kept without permission of the owner.
