The canine athlete: improving the understanding of the agility dog world for the veterinary profession
Thank you for clicking on the link to our survey!
Our names are Josie and Phillie and we are two 3rd year vet students at the new School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Surrey. For our third year projects we are carrying out research into agility dogs. We hope our project will improve the understanding of the exercise and nutritional demands of agility dogs within the veterinary world.
The following questionnaire has been designed to ask you about what you feed your agility dogs, the type of training and exercise that your dogs do, and other straightforward questions. Findings of the study will be of great scientific value and will help us to distribute information to agility professionals, owners and caretakers to enhance the overall wellbeing of agility dogs in the UK.
This study has obtained all required ethical approval. All information collected will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be viewed by members of the research team. Following the Data Protection Act 1998, all data received will be anonymised and stored in an Excel spreadsheet coded by numbers so that no kennels, individuals or dogs can be identified in any publication or by other means of dissemination of the research findings.
