Welcome! We're currently recruiting for the activities below.
1. What's your dog thinking?
We do provide a variety of treats, but we can accommodate special treat requests or you may also bring your dog's favorite snack. Is your dog not food-motivated? No problem! We also have several non-food tasks.
The entire experience takes only an hour! For more information or to schedule an appointment, e-mail: HoodDogStudy@gmail.com or Kundey@hood.edu.
2. Does your dog misbehave around the house?
Does your dog misbehave around the house? Do you also have a 3-5 year-old child living in the home? If so, we’re conducting a study about teaching owners ways to help their dogs behave better. Participation involves 2 one-hour visits to Hood College. Dogs must be at least 6 months of age. For more information or to schedule an appointment, e-mail: HoodDogStudy@gmail.com or Kundey@hood.edu.
3. Is your pooch the cutest?
Is your pooch the cutest? How does he/she affect how others perceive you? We're collecting electronic pictures of dogs and their owners to explore this question. To participate, please send 3 digital images to HoodDogStudy@gmail.com:
(1) a head-on facial photo of your dog without any props (hats, glasses, etc.)
(2) a current head-on facial picture of you (their owner)
(3) a head-on facial
picture of you (their owner) taken prior to acquiring your dog
Please also let us know how long you have owned your dog. Pictures will only be used within our study and not circulated outside the project.
