Is your dog loud?

Welcome!

Thank you for taking the time to complete our questionnaire. By providing us with information about your dog’s vocalizations, you are assisting research at the Ethology Department at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest. We hope you will also find this questionnaire interesting. Perhaps this is the the first time you’ve thought about your dog's vocalizations—when they growl, whine, bark, woof/cough (this is a muffled growl-bark, a low pitched soft burst of air through a partially opened mouth, single, short and noisy) or howl—and why they make those sounds.

If you have more than one dog, please complete a separate questionnaire for each of your dogs. The only condition to participate is that you, the owner, know the dog well, so it is a requirement that, when completing the questionnaire about a dog, you have lived with that dog for at least a couple of months.

Finally, if there is a red star next to a question, it means that the question must be answered. If there is no red star, then that question is optional. All the provided data will be handled confidentially and used only for research purposes.

    Would you like to provide a DNA sample of your dog for genetic analysis regarding the inherited traits of vocalization?

    You can easily collect DNA samples from your dog (see the pictures below). If you agree to provide your dog's sample please follow these steps and ship the dried swabs together with the essential information about the dog (name, age, sex, breed, etc. we use these data to pair the questionnaire results with the samples) in an envelope to the following address: Peter Pongracz, Department of Ethology, Budapest, Pazmany Peter stny. 1/C Hungary, 1117-H. If you filled the questionnaire about multiple dogs, please pack their samples and info separately and put them together in one envelope.
