  1. A comparison of inferential analysis methods for multilevel studies: Implications for drawing conclusions in animal welfare science

    Contributor(s):: Stevens, Kara N., Asher, Lucy, Griffin, Kym, Friel, Mary, O'Connell, Niamh, Collins, Lisa M.

    Investigations comparing the behaviour and welfare of animals in different environments have led to mixed and often conflicting results. These could arise from genuine differences in welfare, poor validity of indicators, low statistical power, publication bias, or inappropriate statistical...

  2. A non-intrusive method of assessing plumage condition in commercial flocks of laying hens

    Contributor(s):: Bright, A., Jones, T. A., Dawkins, M. S.

  3. A Novel Behavioral Intervention in Adolescents With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Improves Glycemic Control: Preliminary Results From a Pilot Randomized Control Trial

    Contributor(s):: Maranda, Louise, Lau, May, Stewart, Sunita M., Gupta, Olga T.

  4. Animal-Assisted Therapy with Farm Animals for Persons with Psychiatric Disorders: Effects on Anxiety and Depression, a Randomized Controlled Trial

    Contributor(s):: Berget, Bente, Ekeberg, Øivind, Pedersen, Ingeborg, Braastad, Bjarne O.

  5. Anxiety and depression in care homes in Malta and Australia: part 2

  6. Canine scent detection of human cancers: a review of methods and accuracy

    Contributor(s):: Moser, E., McCulloch, M.

  7. Comparison of children's behavior toward sony's robotic dog AIBO and a real dog: a pilot study

    Contributor(s):: Ribi, F. N., Yokoyama, A., Turner, D. C.

    A comparison of children's behaviour toward Sony's robotic dog AIBOTM (ERS-210) and a similar sized live dog was made over time. Fourteen children between three and six years of age from a kindergarten and a pre-school play group in Zurich, Switzerland, were visited once a week for eleven weeks...

  8. Conflict and reconciliation behavior trends of the bottlenose dolphin ( Tursiops truncatus )

    Contributor(s):: Holobinko, A., Waring, G. H.

    Wild bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) populations display societal structures characterized by numerous and frequent changes in group composition, complex social relationships, and high levels of cooperation, attributes also observed in human and nonhuman primate cultures. Maintaining...

  9. Development of a novel paradigm for the measurement of olfactory discrimination in dogs ( Canis familiaris): a pilot study

    Contributor(s):: Salvin, H. E., McGrath, C., McGreevy, P. D., Valenzuela, M. J.

    Olfactory dysfunction in older human beings has been shown to be associated with an increased risk of cognitive decline, yet age-related changes in olfactory behavior have received little attention in the dog model of human aging. We developed an odor habituation and fine odor discrimination...

  10. Discrimination between conspecific odour samples in the horse ( Equus caballus )

    Contributor(s):: Hothersall, B., Harris, P., Sortoft, L., Nicol, C. J.

    Behavioural observations suggest that smell is important in social discriminations between horses but balanced studies of this capacity are lacking. We used a habituation-discrimination procedure to investigate the ability of horses to distinguish between pairs of odour samples from different...

  11. Effect of a stimulating environment during the socialization period on the performance of adult police working dogs

    Contributor(s):: Lopes, B., Alves, J., Santos, A., Pereira, G. da G.

    The aim of this study was to determine if using a stimulating enrichment park environment during the socialization period of police working dogs improved social skills. Our intent was to learn whether such exposure could maximize working dog performance in future situations as adults. Six...

  12. Effects of a supported program for horseback riding on inpatients diagnosed with schizophrenia: a qualitative exploratory study

    Contributor(s):: Corring, Deborah J., Johnston, Megan E., Rudnick, Abraham

  13. Effects of an Enhanced Human Interaction Program on shelter dogs' behaviour analysed using a novel nonparametric test

    | Contributor(s):: Normando, S., Corain, L., Salvadoretti, M., Meers, L., Valsecchi, P.

    The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of introduction and interruption of an Enhanced Human Interaction Program (EHIP) on shelter dogs' behaviour and welfare and to apply a novel statistical method to analyse the behavioural data. Twenty-two dogs, which were never subjected to...

  14. Effects of animal-assisted therapy on agitated behaviors and social interactions of older adults with dementia: an evidence-based therapeutic recreation intervention

    | Contributor(s):: Richeson, N. E.

  15. Effects of feeding enrichment on the behaviour and welfare of captive waldrapps (Northern bald ibis) ( Geronticus eremita )

    | Contributor(s):: Vargas-Ashby, H. E., Pankhurst, S. J.

    One of the contributing factors leading to the development of serious foot problems such as bumblefoot (pododermatitis) in captive birds is an abnormally sedentary lifestyle. This study investigated the effects of feeding enrichment on the activity levels of a captive colony of seven Waldrapps or...

  16. Evaluating a website to teach children safety with dogs

    | Contributor(s):: Schwebel, David C., McClure, Leslie A., Severson, Joan

  20. Influence of indoor-cat group size and dominance rank on urinary cortisol levels

    | Contributor(s):: Lichtsteiner, M., Turner, D. C.

    Domestic cats (Felis silvestris catus) are often housed indoors both singly and in groups. However, there is a lack of studies dealing with cat-cat relationships, group composition and effects of environmental parameters on the well-being of privately-owned cats. One way to index the effects of...
