    Greetings,

    I would like to invite members of this forum to participate in a new on-line research program involving owners and their dogs. The Dog Talk Project (http://www.dogtalkproject.com]) is a web-based system of surveys that studies a wide range of dog-related topics, including dog owners’ daily activities and routines, dog health care practices, behavior, training, breed preferences and attitudes, the social effects of dogs, and nutrition and feeding practices. Many interesting results are posted on our “Results Pages” and are updated regularly. Results are also being used for an upcoming book project. We have just posted a new survey: "The Five Most Important Health Care Practices of Dog Owners".

    Participation is free and is completely voluntary. Participating dog owners have a wide variety of dog interests and professions, and include dog sports enthusiasts, professional trainers and behaviorists, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, breeders, shelter and rescue professionals, dog sitters/walkers, and of course, pet owners who simply love spending time with their canine companions! Please feel welcome to visit the Dog Talk Project to learn more about this project (www.dogtalkproject.com) and share your dog-related experiences and knowledge.

    Best wishes,

    Linda Case

    A new survey is available on the Dog Talk Project website (The DogTalk Project - Home). "The Five Most Important Health Care Practices of Dog Owners" examines the regular health and grooming practices that owners use to care for their dogs. Like our first behavior survey, this broad examination of health care will provide initial data to help us to develop more detailed health-related surveys in the future. Dog Talk currently is collecting data on four additional surveys:

    "A Day in The Life of Your Dog"
    "Breed Preferences: Why we love the dogs we do"
    "Dogs and Friends: How dogs affect our social lives"
    "The 10 Most Common Behavior Problems in Dogs"

    Best wishes,
