  1. Online videos indicate human and dog behaviour preceding dog bites and the context in which bites occur

    Contributor(s): Alison E. Ries, Catherine Marrs Fuchsel (adviser)

    YouTube videos of dog bites present an unexplored opportunity to observe dog bites directly. We recorded the context of bites, bite severity, victim and dog characteristics for 143 videos and for 56 videos we coded human and dog behaviour before the bite. Perceived bite severity was derived...

  2. The impact of atypical early histories on pet or performer chimpanzees

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alison E. Ries, Catherine Marrs Fuchsel (adviser)

      It is widely accepted that an animal’s early history, including but not limited to its rearing history, can have a profound impact on later behavior. In the case of captive animals, many studies have used categorical measures such as mother reared or human reared that do not...

  3. Judgement bias in goats (Capra hircus): investigating the effects of human grooming

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alison E. Ries, Catherine Marrs Fuchsel (adviser)

      Animal emotional states can be investigated by evaluating their impact on cognitive processes. In this study, we used a judgement bias paradigm to determine if short-term positive human-animal interaction (grooming) induced a positive affective state in goats. We tested two groups of...

  4. An unexpected acoustic indicator of positive emotions in horses

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alison E. Ries, Catherine Marrs Fuchsel (adviser)

    Indicators of positive emotions are still scarce and many proposed behavioural markers have proven ambiguous. Studies established a link between acoustic signals and emitter’s internal state, but few related to positive emotions and still fewer considered non-vocal sounds. One of them,...

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alison E. Ries, Catherine Marrs Fuchsel (adviser)

    Stereotypic behavior is an important indicator of compromised welfare. Zoo elephants are documented to perform stereotypic behavior, but the factors that contribute to performance have not been systematically assessed. We collected behavioral data on 89 elephants (47 African [Loxodonta...

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alison E. Ries, Catherine Marrs Fuchsel (adviser)

    There is growing scientific and societal recognition of the role that pet dogs can play in healthy development of children; both those who are neuro-typically developing and those who live with a neuro-developmental disorder, such as autism or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. However,...

  8. The Effect of Therapeutic Horseback Riding on Balance and Self-Efficacy in Children with Developmental Disabilities

    Theses

    Therapeutic horseback riding (THR) has positive health related outcomes in children with developmental disabilities. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of a 10-week THR intervention on balance and task-specific self-efficacy in children with developmental disabilities....

  9. More than 50% of Clostridium difficile Isolates from Pet Dogs in Flagstaff, USA, Carry Toxigenic Genotypes

    Journal Articles

    Nosocomial acquisition of Clostridium difficile is well documented, yet recent studies have highlighted the importance of community acquired infections and identified community associated reservoirs for this pathogen. Multiple studies have implicated companion pets and farm animals as...

  10. Identifying and Resolving End of Session Cues in Substance Detection Canine Training

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alison E. Ries, Catherine Marrs Fuchsel (adviser)

    When training and working a substance detection canine, a trained final response should be performed immediately upon recognition of odor (Generally, a 1–3 s window is preferred within our detection practices). Typical canine training places much emphasis on planning and setting up...

    Journal Articles | Contributor(s): Alison E. Ries, Catherine Marrs Fuchsel (adviser)

    Use of behavior evaluations for shelter dogs has progressed despite their lack of scientific validation as reliable diagnostic tools.
