Let me sniff! Nosework induces positive judgment bias in pet dogs

Legg inn av NinaV » 3. februar 2019 kl. 11.51

Highlights
• Nosework reduced dogs' latencies to reach an ambiguous pot in a cognitive bias test.

• Nosework increases dogs’ positive judgment bias or "optimism".

• Practicing nosework allows dogs to express a natural behavior and be more autonomous.

• Behaving naturally and making active choices are two key factors in animal welfare.

• Olfaction-based activities contribute to dogs’ welfare.
