Welcome to Pets Can Do

Do you think your pet can help us better understand animals?

The Pets Can Do database gives you and your pets the opportunity to get involved with research and training. Within the Department of Life Sciences at the University of Lincoln, the Animal Behaviour, Cognition and Welfare Team carries out a wide range of research through staff and student projects. Our research primarily involves the use of dogs. In addition, we welcome cats, reptiles and horses to participate in our online and home studies.

Projects undertaken by the university have worldwide significance in progressing our understanding of animal behaviour, and our work surrounding dog behaviour has been featured on programmes such as BBC’s Horizon and The New York Times

Please visit our Get involved page to find out how you can help out with the exciting research carried out at the University of Lincoln.
