We’re looking for dog breeders and puppy owners to take part in a new research project investigating what makes the human-dog relationship tick.

The first few years of a puppy’s life are full of adventure and just like humans, it takes a village to raise one! In this project, we are working with dog breeders and new puppy owners to track puppies across the first few years of their life to better understand how factors such as breeding, socialisation, health, and temperament may impact the relationship between dogs and the people that care for them.

Want to take part or find out more?
