Dog walkers sought for project on dog-livestock behaviour

 posted by | 25/08/2022

We are looking to recruit responsible dog walkers to investigate the behaviour of dogs as they are walked on lead along public footpaths through fields that contain grazing sheep to better understand how dog’s behaviour affects behaviour of sheep and reduce disturbance to livestock. The research is being conducted at University of Lincoln’s Riseholme Estate and we are looking to book participants for our second round of data collection this autumn.
