  2. The relationships between age, fear responses, and walking ability of broiler chickens

    Contributor(s):: Rasmussen, Sigga N., Erasmus, Marisa, Riber, Anja B.

  3. Dog walk frequency and duration: Analysis of a cohort of dogs up to 15 months of age

    Contributor(s):: Kinsman, Rachel H., Main, Kate E., Casey, Rachel A., Da Costa, Rosa E. P., Owczarczak-Garstecka, Sara C., Knowles, Toby G., Tasker, Séverine, Murray, Jane K.

    Regular exercise for dogs has health and welfare benefits. This study sought to address a gap in existing research regarding what constitutes ‘common’ age-specific walking practices by owners of young dogs, and how these practices change as the dogs reach adulthood. Dog owners living in the United...

  4. Volunteers' demographics that affect the human-dog interaction during walks in a shelter

    | Contributor(s):: Shih, H. Y., Paterson, M. B. A., Pachana, N. A., Phillips, C. J. C.

    Different people relate to dogs in different ways. We investigated differences between volunteers in their behavioural interactions with shelter dogs when they were walked on a leash. Cameras were used to record and quantify the behaviour of volunteers and a leash tension metre was used to...

  5. Impacts of Mobility Dogs on Kinematics during Ambulation: A Quantitative Study

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Altman, K., Glumm, S., Stainton, K., Herlache-Pretzer, E., Webster, S., Winkle, M. Y.

    While prior research has explored various physiological consequences associated with assistive device use for ambulation, limited research has specifically explored the impact of mobility dog partnership on human kinematics. This descriptive study examined the impact of mobility dog partnership...

  6. Associations between plumage colour and fear behaviour in young Nigerian indigenous turkeys (Meleagris gallopavo)

    | Contributor(s):: Durosaro, Samuel O., Iyasere, Oluwaseun S., Oguntade, David O., Ilori, Babatunde M., Odubola, Tejumola A., Adewunmi, Adebola P., Oyeniran, Victor J., Ozoje, Michael O.

    The effects of plumage colour on different behaviours have been reported in several avian species, but there are only few studies for Nigerian indigenous turkeys (NIT). Fear is a negative affective state that is indicative of suffering and associated with adverse effects on welfare and...

  7. A follow-up study of exercise test results and severity of brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome signs in brachycephalic dogs

    | Contributor(s):: Aromaa, M., Rajamäki, M. M., Lilja-Maula, L.

  8. Factors associated with sniffing behaviors between walking dogs in public places

    | Contributor(s):: Holcova, Kristyna, Koru, Eva, Havlicek, Zdenek, Rezac, Petr

    Although body sniffing is the most frequent canine interaction in public places, little is known about olfactory behaviors between walking dogs. The aim of this study was to examine the association of dog, human and behavior characteristics with the number of sniffing dogs within a dyad, with the...

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Benedikt Hielscher, Udo Ganslosser, Ingo Froboese

    Dog ownership has been shown to correlate with physical activity (PA). However, knowledge about the intensities of dog-related PA (drPA) is still lacking. To investigate the duration and intensity of drPA in consideration of PA guidelines, an observational study of dog owners (DO) was...
