    Hello, I am currently studying a level 3 Animal Behaviour and Welfare course. I am doing my dissertation project about if neutering has an effect on dog behaviour. If there is any forums I can post my dissertation questionnaire link into please let me know. I am having to do a survey due to current circumstances of Covid19 and I am just trying to get it out to as may people as possible.
    Thanks in advance and any advice will be really appreciated.
    Rosie :)

    Until you have posted a certain number of posts the forum won't let you put a link up (to stop spammers).
    You could put the link up with spaces and it might work? Either that or get a moderator to do it for you.

    Yes that makes sense. Is there any moderators that would mind posting my questionnaire. Its on Microsoft forms :)
    Please message me if you have any questions etc.
    Thank you again,
    Rosie

    Thank you. I am looking forward to the results I may find. Questions revolve around;
    Age the dog/bitch was neutered
    Breed of dog
    Why they were neutered (behaviour, veterinary advice, reproduction, etc)
    If neutered for behaviour, did the behaviour change? Example, Aggression or dominance towards other dogs. Did neutering have an effect on making this better or worse.

    So far I have wrote my proposal and literature study. I have found neutering is still so controversial on if it effect behaviour, some studies say it does some say it has no effect on the dog. The age the dog is neutered can play a massive role on if behaviour is effected and there is little literature if breed has an effect too.

    I have put a box underneath my questionnaire for peoples emails if they would like to keep up to date with my project too :)

    This does sound interesting. Definitely an area that could benefit from more research as there are so many people (inc me) with anecdotal negative effects from neutering that need further investigation and explanation.

    It definitely needs more research. A lot of research given out on positive effects of neutering on behaviour is actually very old research. Neutering definitely affects health of dogs again with many positive and negative factors. I am looking forward to my results :)

    I know, I'm trying to fix it.

    It works - sort of - if you highlight it and copy/paste it into the address bar.

    But you need a Microsoft Office account, and I've forgotten my password. :rolleyes:

    Thank you so much for posting the link. I really do appreciate it. This is currently my pilot study. I am working on producing my official study on SurveyMonkey. I aim to get this up and running within 2 weeks. If you would be happy @LinznMilly to share that link I will be very grateful. You wont need an account for that one :) If anyone has a Microsoft account and can fill out my current survey through the link provided it will be appreciated and all relevant results will be analysed for my study.
    Many thanks
    Rosie :)
