Border Collie Study Posted April 5, 2013 Report Share Posted April 5, 2013 I am a researcher at Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine's Animal Behavior Clinic and we are doing a study on border collies. The goal of the study is to identify factors associated with canine compulsive behavior and whether this behavior has a genetic basis. To this end we need lots of border collie participants who are behaviorally normal for our control group.We also need border collies who repetitively chase/stare at/pounce on lights, shadows or reflections.Enrollment involves filling out a consent form, a survey and having a saliva sample mailed to Tufts University. For more information, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if your border collie is purebred, his/her age and if he/she does any behavior that seems compulsive. Thank you for your consideration.Nicole Cottam, ACAABTufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine'sAnimal Behavior Clinic200 Westboro RoadNorth Grafton, MA 01536USA Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
