Testing or Training The Lines Blurred

I was visiting with a friend who is also a dog junkie. We were talking about the reasons why we see all these dogs who have been subjected to to much pressure to soon. He concluded that a lot of what we are seeing is the result of people not understanding the difference between testing a dog and teaching/training a dog. They take a young dog and begin to apply the pressure one might want to see later in the progression or maybe to much for the pups temperament to early. Or a lot of other reasons. IMO its a matter of understanding what we are looking at and reading the dog. What is your idea on why it is we see these dogs so much? what is your advice for reading the dog to prevent this for someone who is new and getting started?
