  1. Depression and anxiety: A systematic review on comparing ecotherapy with cognitive behavioral therapy

    Contributor(s):: Rueff, Maria, Reese, Gerhard

  2. Machine learning based canine posture estimation using inertial data

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Marcato, M., Tedesco, S., O'Mahony, C., O'Flynn, B., Galvin, P.

    The aim of this study was to design a new canine posture estimation system specifically for working dogs. The system was composed of Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) that are commercially available, and a supervised learning algorithm which was developed for different behaviours. Three IMUs,...

  3. Exploring the Experiences of Volunteer Assistance Dog Puppy Raisers from the Same Program at Two Australian University Campuses

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Morwood, S., Mai, D., Bennett, P. C., Benton, P., Howell, T. J.

    Assistance dogs are beneficial; however, accessing one can be challenging due to the time, cost, and high failure rates associated with training. A major factor contributing to a high failure rate appears to be the competency of volunteer puppy raisers (PRs), with returning PRs typically more...

  4. Warm Air Leads to Hazardous Ground Temperatures When Walking Dogs in Built and Natural Environments

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Paul Hudak

      Two case studies in Texas, one in a built environment and another in a natural setting, illustrate potential ground heat hazards when walking dogs on warm days. In the first case, temperatures of four different ground surfaces—concrete, grass, chip seal, and tar—were...

  5. Interspecies intercorporeality and mediated haptic sociality: distributing perception with a guide dog

    | Contributor(s):: Due, Brian L.

  6. Walking distance and maintenance energy requirements of sheep during mountain pasturing (transhumance)

    | Contributor(s):: Zanon, T., Gruber, M., Gauly, M.

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

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

  8. 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...

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

    Full-text: Available

    | 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...

  10. 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...

  11. 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...

  12. 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.

  13. 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...

  14. [Physiotherapy interventions through hippotherapy in the treatment of cerebral palsy. A literature review]

    | Contributor(s):: Mendizábal Alonso, P.

  15. Smartphone-Based Inertial Odometry for Blind Walkers

    | Contributor(s):: Ren, Peng, Elyasi, Fatemeh, Manduchi, Roberto
