For many people their pet dog is an important member of their family – loved by young and old alike.

The University of Lincoln and Dogs Trust are exploring child-dog interactions to develop tools to help responsible parents protect the special child-dog relationship.

You are invited to take part in this study- researchers at the School of Life Sciences are looking for dog-owning parents of children, aged 3 – 16 years old, to take part in short survey.

The researchers involved in this project are keen to hear from families who have typically developing children and those with neuro-developmental disorders (e.g. autism, ADHD).

You can take part in the survey online. Please note, the survey will take approximately 20 minutes – participants will be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 Amazon voucher.
