  1. Evaluating Trophic Rewilding as a Conservation Technique

    Theses | Contributor(s): Alan M. Beck

    The focus for this paper is to define specifically trophic rewilding, determine its efficacy as a conservation technique, and explore ways to lessen one of its key limitations. Trophic rewilding is the conservation technique whereby an extirpated keystone species or ecosystem engineer is...

  2. Developing and Assessing the Validity of a Scale to Assess Pet Dog Quality of Life: Lincoln P-QoL

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alan M. Beck

    There has been little investment in exploring the impact of the child-dog relationship on the dog. Since child-dog interactions can pose potentially serious threats to a dog’s physical and psychological health, as well as the wider satisfaction of the owner with their dog, we describe...

  4. Single-Dose Pharmacokinetics and Preliminary Safety Assessment with Use of CBD-Rich Hemp Nutraceutical in Healthy Dogs and Cats

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alan M. Beck

    The use of CBD-rich hemp products is becoming popular among pet owners with no long-term safety data related to consumption in adult dogs and cats. The purpose of this study was to determine the single-dose oral pharmacokinetics of CBD, and to provide a preliminary assessment of safety and...

  6. Social dog — emotional dog?

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alan M. Beck

    Based on their high sociability and their capabilities in social cognition, we should conclude that dogs experience rich emotions in the social domain. I discuss the importance of dog-human attachment and some of the controversial evidence for so-called secondary emotions, which leaves many...

  10. Revisiting a Previously Validated Temperament Test in Shelter Dogs, Including an Examination of the Use of Fake Model Dogs to Assess Conspecific Sociability

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alan M. Beck

    This study assessed the feasibility and reproducibility of a previously validated temperament test (TT) for shelter dogs. The test was developed to measure dog behaviour in the kennel, and traits of sociability towards people and other dogs, docility to leash, playfulness, cognitive skills, and...

  12. The Effect of Tree Width on Thoracolumbar and Limb Kinematics, Saddle Pressure Distribution, and Thoracolumbar Dimensions in Sports Horses in Trot and Canter

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alan M. Beck

    This study evaluated the effect of saddle tree width on thoracolumbar and limb kinematics, saddle pressure distribution, and thoracolumbar epaxial musculature dimensions. Correctly fitted saddles were fitted by a Society of Master Saddler Qualified Saddle Fitter in fourteen sports horses (mean...

  14. Domestic Violence and Abuse (DVA), Companion Animals and Independent Agency: Why as criminologists we need to start a conversation beyond speciesism and towards an intersectional approach.

    Presentations | Contributor(s): Alan M. Beck

    Government strategies (such as VAWG) and the Domestic Abuse Consultation (2019) have begun to recognise the importance of supporting and developing strategies to address other ‘invisible’ and ‘vulnerable’ victims/survivors of DVA as distinct topics for empirical study...

  16. An Exploratory Study of Burial Identification Using Historic Human Remains Detection Dog Alerts and Inorganic Soil Analyses

    Theses | Contributor(s): Alan M. Beck

    One point at which forensic science and historical archaeology intersect, and the focus of this thesis, is using the decidedly forensic avenues of trained dogs, probing, and chemical analyses of soils, informed by archaeological survey, to locate burials. Human remains detection dogs have...

  17. Sex differences in the herding styles of working sheepdogs and their handlers

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alan M. Beck

    Working sheepdog trials test the attributes of dogs as well as the dogmanship and stockmanship skills of handlers. They generally include standard elements such as outrun, lift, fetch, drive, shed, pen and single to test all facets of the work that dogs perform on a farm. While both male and...

  18. Impact of Socio-Economic Status on Accessibility of Dog Training Classes

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alan M. Beck

    Behaviour problems are amongst the most common reasons given for relinquishing dogs to rehoming centres. Some behaviour problems may be amenable to being tackled pre-emptively with classes educating owners on basic dog training and understanding behaviour; however, it is recognised that people...

  20. Attitudes of Clinical Psychologists Towards the Reporting of Nonhuman Animal Abuse

    Theses | Contributor(s): Alan M. Beck
