All the canine (dog) research is done with pets, i.e., dogs volunteered by their owners (with owners giving informed consent for participation similar to research conducted with children). No dogs are acquired for the sole purpose of being used in research projects. No dogs are kennelled, temporarily or permanently, in the Life Science Centre or in my laboratory. Some dogs may spend a day or half a day in the lab but will be given frequent walks by lab staff and volunteers and will always be returning home later in the day. All research carried in my laboratory is non-invasive, does not require sleep, water or food deprivation and induces no anxiety or stress.
