  • Abstract / Overview:
  • Obedience in dogs may have implications for animal welfare and the dog-human relationship. This study used event and time-based lag sequential analyses to examine the quality of dogmanship in videos of humans training dogs on a public video sharing network.

    This information has not only implications for dog-human interactions in an obedience setting but also underlines the possibility that dogs that are perceived as difficult to train may be in the hands of people who lack the timing and awareness that characterize good dogmanship.
