Covid-19 update April 2021: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public for general browsing. We’re still rehoming virtually and we’re here to help if you can no longer care for your dog. Please don’t visit, or travel to our centres unless you have already been matched with a dog, or are leaving donations at one of our contact-free drop off points.

Identifying rational age groups for dogs based on behavioural development

Project lead: Naomi Harvey

Project objectives:  

To identify a standard of rational chronological groupings based upon normative developmental and age-linked processes that could be applied for use in dog behaviour research to better promote standardisation and cross-study comparisons.
