Here is my best explanation:

'dog' is the definition.
(terrier is a kind of dog)

'row involving stray' is the wordplay.
'row' becomes 'tier' (tier is a kind of row).
'involving' is an insertion indicator.
'stray' becomes 'err' ('err' can be a synonym of 'stray').
'tier' placed around 'err' is 'TERRIER'.
