An Opportunity to Participate in an Important Survey!

Calling all Certified Professional Dog Trainers!

Texas Tech University, in collaboration with the National Canine Research Council, is searching for survey participants! Certified Professional Dog Trainers (CPDT-KA and CPDT-KSA) are needed to participate in a short survey about dogs. You will see video clips of various dogs doing many different kinds of things. You will then have the opportunity to react to the video clips. The survey will take approximately 35 min to complete.

This study sets out to determine what professional dog trainers think about the various things that dogs do and so we ask that you provide a valid CPDT ID number with your responses. These will be kept confidential, will never be used outside of the purposes of the study, and will not be used to link to your identity. This study has IRB approval (IRB2016-371).
