I am a student at Moulton College studying BSc Applied Animal Studies. The purpose of this study is to investigate the bonds that dogs form between humans and other dogs. The objectives of the study are:

·         To determine how long it takes to bond to a rescue/adopted dog.

·         To determine the behaviours and closeness of bond of the dog human relationship.

·         To investigate the behaviours between dogs and other dogs within the same household.

I would really appreciate it if you can spare a couple of minutes to fill in the survey for my dissertation. All data that is collected will be anonymous.
