This project has come to an end. The project team has developed an impact page that combines the project's key outputs, such as our blog, publications, and research findings.
One of our outputs is a film on companion dog training. It is available here
and might be useful for anyone wanting to persuade people to engage in training with their dogs. It's free to use!
What are your aims and motivations for this project?
The project aims to explore how different dog training cultures and the practices they involve shape the relationship between dog and human handler.
This inter-disciplinary project investigated different forms of human-animal connectedness and the ways in which they are shaped by different training cultures; we focused on dog training as a particular example.
