Welcome to my website, home of the Dogs and Society blog.

I am a final year PhD candidate at the University of Lincoln,  studying the perception and management of aggressive behaviour in dogs. I also conduct research to identify predictive factors for human directed aggressive behaviour (HDAB).

I initially created this site  to function as an online CV and publication record. However, as the end of my PhD is drawing near it has become apparent that I still have a lot more to write! Thus ‘Dogs and Society’ is born, a place for people to find out more about protecting the human – dog relationship by addressing sociological issues involving dogs.

Please feel free to contact me using the form below, or on twitter (@RachelOrritt) – I am happy to hear from anyone who has an interest in science communication, animal behaviour/welfare, or human-animal interactions.

Many thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy the site.
