Livestock working (Herding) Dog Assessment Form

This form is produced by The University of Sydney Farm Dog Project to collect trait information on Australian stock herding dogs. For participant information on the project please go to: http://sydney.edu.au/vetscience/research/animal_behaviour/farmdog/.

This form should take about 5 minutes to complete. It is important that all questions are answered. You may complete the form anonymously as you are not obliged to leave your personal details. Your personal details will not be linked to your responses and your contact details will not be passed on to any third party. By completing this form you will be contributing to our knowledge of stock herding dogs. The information you provide will assist with ongoing research at the University of Sydney. We believe this will benefit working farm dogs and their owners/handlers/breeders.

This project is supported by a grant from the Australian government’s Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation, Meat and Livestock Australia and in kind, support from the Working Kelpie Council of Australia.

    Before we begin, we need some information about you...

    The information collected will not be publicly connected to you or your dog. It will be used to investigate how traits are passed on to offspring. Please be critical in the assessments and reporting of your dogs’ behaviour as variation in scores is needed to identify genetic differences.
