Comparing lateral bias in dogs and humans using the Kong™ ball test
Contributor(s):: Wells, Deborah L., Hepper, Peter G., Milligan, Adam D. S., Barnard, Shanis
The Kong™ ball test has been used extensively to assess lateral bias in the domestic dog. Implicit in this challenge is the assumption that dogs use their dominant paw to stabilise the ball. This study examined whether or not this is the case. A comparative approach was adopted, exploring...

Training success in group-housed long-tailed macaques ( Macaca fascicularis) is better explained by personality than by social rank
Contributor(s):: Wergard, E. M., Westlund, K., Spangberg, M., Fredlund, H., Forkman, B.
Using training to prepare laboratory animals for biomedical research is one important behavior management task. With increased knowledge about factors influencing training success, training programs may be optimized, resulting in a refinement of primate husbandry. Even when animals are trained...

Unwanted oral investigative behaviour in horses: a note on the relationship between mugging behaviour, hand-feeding titbits and clicker training
Contributor(s):: Hockenhull, J., Creighton, E.
Unwanted oral investigative in horses has been anecdotally attributed to the practice of hand-feeding. Fears over such behaviour developing as a consequence of using food rewards, for example in clicker training, have been implicated as a common reason for not employing food-based positive...
The effect of early handling of foals on their reaction to handling, humans and novelty, and the foal-mare relationship
Contributor(s):: Sondergaard, E., Jago, J.
The natural behaviour of horses in response to danger is to take flight, and consequently human handlers can be injured. Reducing the flight response and general reactivity of horses is therefore likely to reduce the incidence of injuries to handlers. In this experiment we investigated the effect...
