  1. Welfare impacts associated with using aversive geofencing devices on captive Asian elephants

  2. The evaluation of two commercial electric sheep stunning systems: current applied and the effect on heart function

    Contributor(s):: Orford, F., Ford, E. A., Brown, S. N., McKinstry, J., Hadley, P. J., Lines, J. A., Knowles, T. G., Wotton, S. B.

  3. Electrical stunning of edible crabs (Cancer pagurus): from single experiments to commercial practice

    Contributor(s):: Roth, B., Grimsbo, E.

  4. The effect of electrical head-to-chest stunning on the EEG in sheep

    Contributor(s):: Mason, A., Tolo, E., Hektoen, L., Haga, H. A.

  5. Evaluation of an aversion-based program designed to reduce predation of native birds by dogs: An analysis of training records for 1156 dogs

    Contributor(s):: Dale, Arnja R., Podlesnik, Christopher A., Elliffe, Douglas

    The aim of this study was to quantify 1647 aversion training sessions involving 1156 dogs conducted between 1998 and 2007 at Coromandel sites (North Island, New Zealand). The effects of gender, age, social group size, function of dog, breed, number of training sessions and responses to training...

  6. Using mildly electrified grids to impose costs on resource access: A potential tool for assessing motivation in laboratory mice

    Contributor(s):: Walker, Michael, Mason, Georgia

    Access to strongly preferred resources improves animals’ welfare. Ethologists often assess strengths of preference by making resource-access costly, and observing animals’ responses as costs increase (e.g. identifying the cost reached before animals cease to pay). Such costs typically...

  7. Testing systems of avian perch deterrents on electric power distribution poles in sage-brush habitat

    Contributor(s):: Dwyer, James F., Doloughan, Kerrin W.

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

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

  9. Electric fencing reduces heron predation at northeastern trout hatcheries

    | Contributor(s):: Mark E. Tobin, James F. Glahn, Erica S. Rasmussen

    Great blue herons (Ardea herodius) are the most common avian predator at commercial trout hatcheries in the northeastern United States. We evaluated a 2-strand electric fence for excluding this species from raceways at 2 commercial trout hatcheries in central Pennsylvania. Fences consisted of...

  10. Advances in the electrical stunning and bleeding of ostriches

    | Contributor(s):: Hoffman, L. C.

  11. Auditing animal welfare and making practical improvements in beef-, pork- and sheep-slaughter plants

    | Contributor(s):: Grandin, T.

  13. Identifying reasons for stun failures in slaughterhouses for cattle and pigs: a field study

    | Contributor(s):: Wenzlawowicz, M. von, Holleben, K. von, Eser, E.

  14. The effect of stun duration and level of applied current on stun and meat quality of electrically stunned lambs under commercial conditions

    | Contributor(s):: Berg, C., Nordensten, C., Hultgren, J., Algers, B.

  15. [Training methods in dogs with and without electric training collars]

    | Contributor(s):: Schalke, E., Ott, S., Hackbarth, H.

  16. Complementary and Alternative Therapies for Cerebral Palsy

    | Contributor(s):: Liptak, Gregory S.

  17. Nociception-related somatosensory evoked potentials in awake dogs recorded after intra epidermal electrical stimulation

    | Contributor(s):: van Oostrom, Hugo, Stienen, Peter J., Doornenbal, Arie, Hellebrekers, Ludo J.

  18. Clinical signs caused by the use of electric training collars on dogs in everyday life situations

    | Contributor(s):: Schalke, E., Stichnoth, J., Ott, S., Jones-Baade, R.

    The use of electric shock collars for training dogs is the subject of considerable controversy. Supporters claim that they are a reliable means of eliminating self-rewarding behaviour and that they can be used over greater distances and with less risk of stress and injury than mechanical devices,...

  19. Oestrus and mating behaviour in gilts during boar induced puberty in relation to stress and housing

    | Contributor(s):: Pedersen, L. J., Jensen, K. H., Giersing Linder, A.

    The effect of intermittent electroshock and individual vs. pair housing on sexual proceptive behaviour was studied in 48 large White x Danish Landrace gilts. In addition, the effect of intermittent electroshock on the behavioural response to boar stimulation and on sexual receptivity during first...

  20. The contribution of applied ethology in judging animal welfare in farm animal housing systems

    | Contributor(s):: Wechsler, B., Frohlich, E., Oester, H., Oswald, T., Troxler, J., Weber, R., Schmid, H.

    An authorization procedure for mass-produced farm animal housing systems introduced by Swiss animal welfare legislation in 1981 is discussed. It recommends that veterinary, physiological and behavioural tests are carried out to identify animal welfare problems in housing systems or devices that...
