In the previous issue we covered the work being done with ‘clever canines’ on campus. Rebecca Hassall, lab site manager for the Clever Canine Lab, reports that everything is ticking along well.

 

“We’ve been really pleased by how many owners have registered their dogs and attended sessions since we began our research last year. Currently, we are looking to recruit dogs which are keen to fetch stationary tennis balls or have any experience with flyball or agility training. And we’re also looking for dogs which really love attention and petting from their owners. If this sounds like your dog, we'd love to hear from you! ” she says.
