  4. Heart rate changes in the horse to human contact

  5. Social responding in dogs: heart rate changes to a person

    Contributor(s):: Lynch, J. J., McCarthy, J. F.

  6. Emotions in dogs being petted by a familiar or unfamiliar person: validating behavioural indicators of emotional states using heart rate variability

    Contributor(s):: Kuhne, F., Hossler, J. C., Struwe, R.

    Although physical human-dog interactions have an important influence on the human-dog relationship, few studies have proposed the key factors of physical human-dog contact affecting the well-being of dogs. Therefore, our aim was to investigate the effect of physical human-dog contact on the...

  7. Young Blond d'Aquitaine, Angus and Limousin bulls differ in emotional reactivity: relationships with animal traits, stress reactions at slaughter and post-mortem muscle metabolism

    Contributor(s):: Bourguet, C., Deiss, V., Boissy, A., Terlouw, E. M. C.

    The present study investigated relationships between reactivity during tests, stress reactions at slaughter and animal traits in young Blond d'Aquitaine (BA), Limousin (LI) and Angus (AN) bulls. Behavioural and physiological reactivity of animals was evaluated during rearing using a "Human test"...

  8. Assessing the rider's seat and horse's behavior: difficulties and perspectives. (Special Issue: Equitation science.)

    Contributor(s):: Blokhuis, M. Z., Aronsson, A., Hartmann, E., Reenen, C. G. van, Keeling, L.

    A correct seat and position are the basis for a good performance in horseback riding. This study aimed to measure deviations from the correct seat, test a seat improvement program (dismounted exercises), and investigate whether horse behaviour was affected by the rider's seat. Five experienced...

  9. Reduction of phobic behaviour for animals in a boy with mental retardation

    Contributor(s):: Arntzen, Erik, Almås, Inger Karin

    Presents a treatment programme to eliminate phobic behavior in an 11-yr-old mentally retarded boy when confronted with different animals, such as dogs, cats, cows, birds, horses, sheep, and rabbits. The intention was to determine the number of different types of dogs required to reach the desired...

  10. The physiological and behavioural impact of sensory contact among unfamiliar adult mice in the laboratory

    Contributor(s):: Rettich, A., Kasermann, H. P., Pelczar, P., Burki, K., Arras, M.

    Housing mice in the laboratory in groups enables social interaction and is the way a laboratory should house mice. However, adult males show reciprocal aggression and are therefore frequently housed individually. Alternatively, a grid divider, which allows sensory contact by sight and smell but...

  11. There's a rat in my room! Now what? Mice show no chronic physiological response to the presence of rats

    Contributor(s):: Meijer, M. K., Loo, P. L. P. van, Baumans, V.

    In general, guidelines on housing and care of animals in the laboratory state that rats and mice should not be housed in the same room. Mice may perceive rats as predators. Although one theory says this can cause stress, there is little scientific evidence to support this theory. In the wild,...

  12. Trailer loading stress in horses: behavioral and physiological effects of nonaversive training (TTEAM)

    Contributor(s):: Shanahan, S.

    Resistance in the horse to trailer loading is a common source of stress and injury to horses and their handlers. The objective of this study was to determine whether non-aversive training based on the Tellington-Touch Equine Awareness Method (TTEAM; Tellington-Jones & Bruns, 1988) would decrease...

  13. The effects of restriction of movement on the reliability of heart rate variability measurements in the horse ( Equus caballus)

    Contributor(s):: Vitale, V., Balocchi, R., Varanini, M., Sgorbini, M., Macerata, A., Sighieri, C., Baragli, P.

    Analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) is a noninvasive approach for investigating the sympathovagal balance of the autonomic nervous system. In recent years, HRV has been increasingly evaluated in animal research. In horses, it has been suggested that basal resting conditions can be achieved...

  14. An objective measure of reactive behaviour in horses

    Contributor(s):: Noble, G. K., Blackshaw, K. L., Cowling, A., Harris, P. A., Sillence, M. N.

  15. Heart rate variability in horses engaged in equine-assisted activities
