    | Contributor(s):: Sophie S Hall, Hannah F Wright, Daniel S Mills

However,...

  11. Social Interaction with an "Unidentified Moving Object" Elicits A-Not-B Error in Domestic Dogs

    | Contributor(s):: Anna Gergely, Anna B Compton, Ruth C Newberry, Adam Miklosi

    Mechanical “unidentified moving objects” (UMO’s) are useful for controlled investigations into features of social interaction that generate cooperativeness and positive social affiliation in domestic dogs (Canis familiaris). We hypothesized that, if a UMO interacted socially...

  12. Do Lambs Perceive Regular Human Stroking as Pleasant? Behavior and Heart Rate Variability Analyses

    | Contributor(s):: Katie Osborn, Marjorie Coulon, Raymond Nowak, Julie Peyrat, Herve Chandeze, Alain Boissy, Xavier Boivin

    Stroking by humans is beneficial to the human-animal relationship and improves welfare in many species that express intraspecific allogrooming, but very few studies have looked at species like sheep that do not express such contact except around parturition. This study investigated the way lambs...
