Dog-Owner dyad interaction in a request situation


My name is Tomás and I’m a Portuguese-Chilean student in the Applied Ethology and Animal Biology Master’s program.

When I was 12 years old, my uncle offered me a copy of Jack London’s “The Call of the Wild”, and since then, I knew I wanted to study animal behavior, more specifically the interactions between animals and humans.

During my thesis, I got to work with Portuguese dog owners, to observe the interactions found between humans and their pets.

Join me as we explore my thesis project on Dog-Owner dyad interactions.
