Default Research Project

I got this from another forum. I thought some of you might be interested in participating.
.................................................. .................................................. ....
The University of Texas at Austin is doing a massive research project on temperament and personality in dogs. They need input. If you're interested, please contact them at the information below -- and feel free to cross-post and hand out to your students, etc. Thanks!

I am a Ph.D. student working with Dr. Sam Gosling at UT-Austin and am studying personality and temperament in the domestic dog. Currently, we are designing a questionnaire for the assessment of personality in dogs. Once this questionnaire is completed, we aim to use it to answer a variety of research questions, from what
characterizes the best explosives detection dogs and guide dogs, to what types of breed-specific personality traits truly exist, to whether there are specific types of dogs who often end up in rescues and shelters. However, to create a reliable and valid dog personality questionnaire, we need thousands of dog owners to fill
out the initial version of our on-line questionnaire, which is quite lengthy, and to give us feedback. This is why I'm writing to you!

Although the questionnaire is not yet ready, we are compiling an e-mail list of individuals who would be willing to participate in the study. Once the questionnaire is posted (within a couple weeks), I will e-mail the participant list. For further information about this and other studies, please visit our website at and click on the Attention Dog Owners! link. To volunteer for the study or if you have any questions, please e-mail me directly at [email protected]

Please tell all your dog-owning friends about our study!

All the best,
Amanda Jones

I went to the site and tried contacting the e-mail address after reading, and it got returned to me as an unknown address.

Stupid is the most notoriously incurable and contagious disease known to mankind. If you find yourself in close proximity to someone infected with stupid, walk away as soon as said infection is noted.
