Environmentally Enriched Dog Housing

Scientific Journal Articles

This paper describes the philosophy and design behind the construction and operation of three dog buildings in a facility that houses both dogs and cats in the most animal friendly conditions, providing maximum environmental interest to the pet, consistent with the requirements of nutritional and behavioural studies. The husbandry systems use the best health care practices, with emphasis on canine or feline companionship and the human pet relationship.
