Large Scale Survey on Dog Ownership

People from all corners of the globe answered a questionnaire about their attitudes towards dogs and their experiences of dog ownership. This research is part of a project funded by the University of Lincoln’s Research Investment Fund, awarded to Profs Todd Hogue (Psychology) and Daniel Mills (Life Sciences), that looks to understand the dog-human relationship, with a particular focus on human directed aggressive behaviour.
To investigate this complex social issue, the researchers needed to gather a lot of data within a short period of time. With the help of an IPad Prize incentive, just short of 1500 responses were collected. The lucky winner of the IPad Air was Sam Watts, a student at the University of Lincoln, pictured receiving his prize above. The same team with RA Rachel Orritt will be running a follow up survey in the near future, so watch this space to be in with a chance of becoming the next prize winner!
