Research into dog attacks?

Following a number of recent news stories I am disappointed to see that as always there seems to be no follow up on essential details regarding dog attacks? (the circumstances involved, the history of the dog, Information on the people involved, welfare concerns etc.)

Better education and better understanding of the various factors of why dog attacks occur are surely the key to the prevention of future attacks and would help provide better legislation that actually worked to keep both people and dogs safe?

Looking on-line I found that there is very little research being done in the UK but I did see that a Behaviourist called Debbie Connolly has organised a survey and a petition which I thought would be good to share with Dogsey members:

Petition here :

Also survey:

Although a very serious and important issue I am aware that this subject can be very emotive. Therefore, at least for my part, this post is for information only. Many Thanks

Wasn't this lady one of the early trainers on the Dog Borstal TV series?

I believe so Chris, however personally I have never watched Dog Borstal so I cannot comment further on this? I was just glad to hear that someone was making an attempt to promote more research into the various factors of dog attacks.

In America they have The Canine Research council, set up by Karen DeLise (Author of the Pit Bull placebo, which I am currently reading)

Apologies about the [a social network] link, I didn't realise this was prohibited, it was just a simple survey from SafepetsUK, I'm sure people can find it if they are familiar with [a social network] ( not like me Ha)
