  7. The impact of an introductory animal handling course on undergraduate students who lack previous livestock handling experience

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Jennifer M Bundy, Jodi A Sterle, Anna K Johnson, Gregory T Krahn

    A majority of animal science undergraduates have limited livestock handling experience when they come to college. To address this issue, a course based on livestock handling, safety and welfare was implemented in the Department of Animal Science at Iowa State University. This study aimed to 1)...

  8. Impact of Refinements to Handling and Restraint Methods in Mice

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Davies, Jennifer R., Purawijaya, Dandri A., Bartlett, Julia M., Robinson, Emma S. J.

    There is increasing evidence that, compared to non-aversive handling methods (i.e., tunnel and cupping), tail handling has a negative impact on mouse welfare. Despite this evidence, there are still research organisations that continue to use tail handling. Here, we investigated handling for...

  9. Multiple handlers, several owner changes and short relationship lengths affect horses’ responses to novel object tests

    | Contributor(s):: Liehrmann, Océane, Viitanen, Alisa, Riihonen, Veera, Alander, Emmi, Koski, Sonja E., Lummaa, Virpi, Lansade, Léa

  10. Effect of Handler Knowledge of the Detection Task on Canine Search Behavior and Performance

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Mallory T. DeChant, Cameron Ford, Nathaniel J. Hall

    Detection dogs are commonly trained and tested under conditions in which the handler or the evaluator knows the true presence or absence of a target odor. Previous research has demonstrated that when handlers are deceived and led to believe that a target odor is present, more false alerts...

  11. Responsiveness of domesticated goats towards various stressors following long-term cognitive test exposure

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Rosenberger, K., Simmler, M., Langbein, J., Nawroth, C., Keil, N.

     Current evidence suggests that frequent exposure to situations in which captive animals can solve cognitive tasks may have positive effects on stress responsiveness and thus on welfare. However, confounding factors often hamper the interpretation of study results. In this study, we used...

  12. Effect of cooperative care training on physiological parameters and compliance in dogs undergoing a veterinary examination – A pilot study

    | Contributor(s):: Wess, Lukas, Böhm, Astrid, Schützinger, Miriam, Riemer, Stefanie, Yee, Jason R., Affenzeller, Nadja, Arhant, Christine

    One way to reduce fear and lack of compliance during veterinary procedures is ‘cooperative care training’, training animals to voluntarily participate in husbandry and medical care. Here we assessed the effects of cooperative care training on heart rate (HR), heart rate variability (HRV),...

  13. Human–Animal Interactions with Bos taurus Cattle and Their Impacts on On-Farm Safety: A Systematic Review

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Titterington, Frances Margaret, Knox, Rachel, Buijs, Stephanie, Lowe, Denise Elizabeth, Morrison, Steven James, Lively, Francis Owen, Shirali, Masoud

    Cattle production necessitates potentially dangerous human–animal interactions. Cattle are physically strong, large animals that can inflict injuries on humans accidentally or through aggressive behaviour. This study provides a systematic review of literature relating to farm management...

  14. A Behavioral Index for Assessing Bison Stress Level during Handling and Demographic Predictors of Stress Response

    In Scylla mud crab farming, limb autotomy is commonly used in soft-shell crab production to expedite the moulting process and temporarily achieve high stocking density during crablet transportation. However, little is known about the effect of limb loss on the feeding ability of mud crabs....

  16. Does benchmarking of rating scales improve ratings of search performance given by specialist search dog handlers?

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Clark, C. C. A., Rooney, N. J.

    Rating scales are widely used to rate working dog behavior and performance. Whilst behaviour scales have been extensively validated, instruments used to rate ability have usually been designed by training and practitioner organizations, and often little consideration has been given to how...

  17. Social Interaction during Dog and Robot Group Sessions for Nursing Home Residents with Dementia: the Handler Effect

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Lonneke GJA Schuurmans, Inge Noback, Jos MGA Schols, Marie-José Enders-Slegers

    As part of an 8-week intervention study in Dutch nursing homes, we used video-analysis to observe the interaction of psychogeriatric participants with either the handler, the stimulus (dog or robot) or other clients during weekly dog, robot (RAI, robot assisted interventions) and control (human...

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Robert Hagevoort

    This presentation will focus on the concept that animal welfare doesn’t live in a vacuum; it’s the outcome of an interaction between a human and an animal, and it can either have a positive or a negative outcome. The question explored in this presentation is how much does the...
