    Hey guys,

    I'm a Animal behaviour student at manchester metropolitan university studying dog behaviour for my final year dissertation. I'm looking at many aspects of a dogs behaviour and I need as many people as possible to fill in an anonymous questionnaire I've written.

    You can find the questionnaire here:

    http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/mmudogstudy2015

    If you have I few minutes to spare I'd be so, so grateful if you could give this a look, it doesn't take long at all.
    Especially if you have a dog that you believe may have separation anxiety.

    Thank you!

    Done, but just one suggestion.

    "Is your dog vocal? i.e. bark, howl and/or whimper/cry when left completely alone"?

    Seems a strange question as surely if the dog is completely alone you don't know if they've been making noise or not. I would either drop that question or add in a "don't know" option.

    Actually, just another couple of suggestions!

    Questions 28, 29 and 32. Instead of "Do you know if your dog..." change it to "Was your dog...". For example with 28, "Do you know if your dog was abused/mistreated before arriving at the center?". Yes I do know if my dog was abused, I know that he wasn't but technically the correct answer to your question is yes, although that isn't the answer that you would want from me for that question. If it was "Was your dog abused..." then the answer would be no without any room for pedantic interpretation.
