  1. Preference Ranking Procedure: Method Validation with Dogs

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Han Li, Rachel Wyant, Greg Aldrich, Kadri Koppel

    The growth of the number of pet products and the pet food industry is continuous. This is partially driven by palatability and perceptions of preference. A preference ranking procedure for dogs has been proposed in order to suggest a more efficient method to study the palatability of food...

  2. Measuring Equine-Assisted Therapy: Validation and Confirmatory Factor Analysis of an ICF-Based Standardized Assessment-Tool

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Stolz, I., Anneken, V., Froböse, I.

    The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) of the World Health Organization (WHO) was established as an international framework for monitoring rehabilitation outcomes and the impacts of health interventions since, as the term “functioning” implies,...

  3. Validation of technical survey dogs in Cambodian mine fields

    | Contributor(s):: Schoon, Adee, Heiman, Michael, Bach, Håvard, Berntsen, Terje Groth, Fast, Cynthia D.

    Finding and destroying landmines is a costly and time-consuming process; however, strategically employing a variety of complementary assets, such as brush cutting machines, metal detectors, and scent detection animals, improves process efficiency. Although animal detection systems have...

  4. Tracking performance in poultry is affected by data cleaning method and housing system

    | Contributor(s):: Candelotto, Laura, Grethen, Klara J., Montalcini, Camille M., Toscano, Michael J., Gómez, Yamenah

    Sensor-based behavioural observation methods improve our understanding of individual behaviour and welfare in large commercial groups, including poultry. Validating automatically generated data is essential to account for potential sources of error. Our study aimed to validate a sensor-based...

  5. Evaluation of consistency over time of the use of the Animal Welfare Indicators protocol for horses

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Deborah L. Duffy, Roseana T. Diniz de Moura, James A. Serpell

    A questionnaire instrument for obtaining quantitative behavioral evaluations of pet cats from cat owners was developed and validated. Exploratory Factor Analysis of 2608 questionnaire responses to 149 behavioral questions/items extracted a total of 23 distinct factors that measured most of the...

  13. The Translation and Validation of the Dutch Monash Dog–Owner Relationship Scale (MDORS)

    | Contributor(s):: Emmy A.E. van Houtert, Nienke Endenburg, Joris J. Wijnker, T. Bas Rodenburg, Hein A. van Lith, Eric Vermetten

    The Monash Dog–Owner Relationship Scale (MDORS) is a questionnaire that is used to evaluate the perceived relationship between humans and their dog. This questionnaire was originally only formulated and validated in English, which limits its use among non-English speaking individuals....

  14. Validation of accelerometers to automatically record postures and number of steps in growing lambs

    | Contributor(s):: Högberg, Niclas, Höglund, Johan, Carlsson, Annelie, Saint-Jeveint, Marie, Lidfors, Lena

    We validated the accuracy of two commercially available activity loggers for cattle in determining lying and standing durations, number of lying bouts and number of steps in growing lambs. Ten growing lambs divided into two weight classes were fitted with an IceTag on the right hind leg and an...

  15. Development and validation of a quality of life assessment tool for use in kennelled dogs (Canis familiaris)

    | Contributor(s):: Kiddie, Jenna L., Collins, Lisa M.

    There is currently no objective and validated quality of life assessment tool available to assess the quality of life of domestic dogs in kennels.
