New dog research abundant and accessible

It’s exciting how much scientific research is currently being done on the behavior of dogs and of other pets. Even better, so many of the new studies are accessible to anyone with an internet connection. The recent Pet Behaviour Conference was an open online event put together by Pet Behaviour Science—a free, open source, peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research on pet behavior and pet-human relationships. The conference was hosted by the University of Cordoba in Spain.

Looking at the conference proceedings, I realized that there are so many researcher names that are new to me, which is yet another indicator of the increase in interest in the area of pet behavior. A whole new generation of scientists is exploring the behavior of our best friends to the benefit of us all.
