Thinking of adopting a dog soon? – Heres a way to also become in involved in a ground breaking and very worthwhile study.
Hong Kong University approached us some months back about a study they were making into the benefits of dog ownership –
In particularly the health benefits arising from the extra exercise dog owners derive as well as the mental benefits of owning a canine companion.
You can read all about it on the following link:-
It’s a hugely interesting project and one which hopefully will have an important impact on dog ownership for many years to come; But the fact is they are desperately seeking volunteers to take part. They need to be able to measure ones level of activity before owning a dog and then the activity levels after owning. Its non invasive and the data is obtained through a small sophisticated device. – its easy and a really great thing to be involved in.
If you can help the Hong Kong University would love to hear from you – again please access the researchers directly through the above link.
…and as you can see there’s even a small cash incentive – enough for a few months dog food!!
