Survey - Dog Behaviour & Emotion

Survey on Public Perception of Dog Behaviour & Emotion


Dogs Trust are conducting a research project to explore how people interpret dogs’ body language, the emotions they might associate with it, and how they might respond to it. This is important for understanding which key messages Dogs Trust need to promote in our work to support dog welfare and public safety around dogs in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

This survey will ask questions on your views of how dogs communicate through body language but will also offer a free and optional opportunity at the end to learn a bit more about dog behaviour. You do not need to own a dog to take part in this survey, you do not even need to like dogs(!) to take part in this survey.
