For almost 3 years we have been trying to raise awareness of the physical and mental suffering caused to companion dogs and their owners by the growing number of dog-on-dog attacks.
There has been little or no scientific research into this issue. Direct Line commissioned research a couple of years ago with shocking results. DEFRA refused to accept their findings or the substantial amount of anecdotal evidence.
We were therefore much encouraged by an article published on the 18th January 2021 by The Canine & Feline Behaviour Association –
Growing evidence revealed by CFBA 2021/21 survey that dog-on-dog attacks are on the increase
We contacted the CFBA who are willing to consider more in-depth research specifically into dog-on-dog attacks.
To make this new research viable CFBA need a minimum of 300 people to complete a short questionnaire about their experience of dog-on-dog attacks. This is an opportunity to get our voices heard and take part in unique research. We need your help! Everyone can join in.
The information will be collated by their research team to help understanding of the interactions of our pet dogs.All information provided will be treated as private and confidential under the Data Protection Act.
Addresses and telephone numbers will not be required, just an email address.
The questionnaire will be published online and take less than 10 minutes to complete.
