This report presents the detailed results from two additional surveys which HSI conducted in July and August 2017. Street dog surveys were conducted across all twelve wards in Vadodara using the methodology already implemented in 2014 to reassess the composition and sterilization rate in the street dog population. Extensive household surveys across six of the twelve wards (ward 1, 2, 5, 7, 8 and 9) were conducted to estimate the total private dog population and to explore dog demographics. Data included how private dogs contribute to the street dog population and a study of the human-dog relationship as a driver of street dog and private dog population dynamics. The household survey further included KAP (Knowledge, Attitude and Practices) questions assessing the level of rabies knowledge, bite wound treatment knowledge and bite treatment practices as well as practices and attitudes towards street dogs.
