Studying individual’s abilities to interact with and train dogs
Good dogmanship involves best practice in dog-human interactions and has a fundamental role in the success of dogs as companions and co-workers.

Our aims

Our dogmanship research aims to characterise the human attributes that influence dog behaviour and identify optimal ways of interacting with dogs. Additionally, dogmanship examines the psychological underpinnings that can contribute to how humans interact with dogs. 

Our research

Our research projects include:

  • Dogs and Human Health
  • Farm Dog Project
  • Learning theory
  • Senior Dog Project
  • Working Dog Alliance
