Interests:
I am interested in all aspects of animal behavior.  In particular, I am interested in how training affects animals’ behavioral time budgets.  Does training have an impact on captive animals’ welfare?  In addition to my academic work, dog agility is my obsession.  I have a two year old Border collie (Park Ave’s Public Enemy Number One – Dillinger) who is currently in AKC excellent A Standard agility classes and in excellent A jumpers agility classes.  Dilly and my other dog Mrs. Frisby, an Australian Shepherd, are currently having a blast learning how to herd sheep.
