Online Survey Investigating Dog Activity Levels Launched

Posted 7 months ago

A team at Nottingham Trent University are inviting owners to participate in a survey to investigate how breed, age, gender, medical conditions and the time of year impact the activity levels of different dogs.

It is hoped that the results may be useful in helping new dog owners identify breeds that suit their lifestyle, and in helping veterinary surgeons and nurses identify conditions that can impact the activity levels of dogs and therefore potentially increase the dog’s risk of developing obesity.

The researchers are also interested in how the weather impacts dog activity levels, particularly during very cold, and very hot spells.
