Who else is involved: The student is being supported by Carys Williams and Naomi Harvey
To identify what changes, if any, in behaviour and activity occur in kennelled dogs after receiving hydrotherapy treatment, compared to control conditions
To evaluate whether any changes may indicate changes in stress/eustress or a change in welfare state and whether the changes are stable over time and over multiple sessions.
