Abstract

We propose new approaches to assessing the suitability of  potential working dogs for a given occupation. The main  focus is placed on continuously-recording technology that  does not rely on constant human observation. An example  is provided in the form of a pilot study relying on activity  and human-proximity data collected from dogs both prior  to and during advanced training at Canine Companions for  Independence. We conclude by noting other technologies  that could also be used to achieve this purpose.
