To raise a good dog, patience is useful is the example of a dangling modifier. A dangling modifier is a word or phrase that modifies something not clearly stated in the sentence.

These are also known as misplaced modifiers and to correct this problem, the sentence could be changed to read: Patience is useful to raise a good dog. This correction allows for more clarification about the word or phrase being modified.
