Behavior test sessions and sample collection

Depending on the study, each visit takes around 30 mins to 1.5hrs. In addition to behavior testing, some studies request to video-record the dog’s behaviors at your home and/or obtain biological samples (urine, saliva or blood, etc.) from your dog.
All tests and sample collections have been approved by the ethical committee of Purdue University.

Please remember you can reject a particular request/study from your dog or withdraw your dog from the database at any time.

If we feel your dog may need further evaluation or if you have any concern or questions about your dog’s behavior, we can discuss these issues at a later time outside of the study sample collection appointment.
