  1. Measuring dog-owner relationships: crossing boundaries between animal behaviour and human psychology

    Contributor(s):: Rehn, Therese, Keeling, Linda J.

    Previous research suggests that dogs (Canis familiaris) form attachment bonds to their owners and that the strengths of the attachment can vary. However, it does not seem reasonable to believe that all dogs share the same attachment style, considering their differences in genetic background,...

  2. Piglets call for maternal attention: vocal behaviour in Sus scrofa domesticus is modulated by mother's proximity

    Contributor(s):: Iacobucci, P., Colonnello, V., D'Antuono, L., Cloutier, S., Newberry, R. C.

    Plasticity in the production of "separation distress" vocalizations, and seeking of caregivers beyond mere satisfaction of immediate physiological needs, are manifestations of attachment that we investigated in the domestic pig ( Sus scrofa domesticus). Female piglets from eight litters were...

  3. Effects of sex, litter size and periconceptional ewe nutrition on the ewe-lamb bond

    Contributor(s):: Hernandez, C. E., Matthews, L. R., Oliver, M. H., Bloomfield, F. H., Harding, J. E.

    Undernutrition restricted to the time around conception in sheep alters endocrine and metabolic responses in the offspring. Studies in rats suggest that such an early insult can also alter the behaviour of the offspring. We studied the effects of mild maternal periconceptional undernutrition...

  4. Mother location by newborn lambs in repetitive testing: influence of first successful reunion

    Contributor(s):: Nowak, R.

    A hypothesis was studied that the mother-seeking behaviour of newborn lambs is strongly influenced by previous experience of successful reunion with the mother. In a first group, lambs were initially tested for their ability to seek ewes and to recognise their own dams in a 2-choice test at the...
