Cristina Gomes und Aurélien Budzinski

Cristina & Aurélien are 2 dog behaviourists certified by Turid Rugaas in France. They use their knowledge to assist dog owners to better understand their animals. They also created the Dogbrochures.com project, a worldwide web database, to help people spread accurate information about dogs and their wellbeing.

In this talk “At the heart of the walk”, you will discover the result of their field study about the heart rate of the dog during different walks. Combining observation and data analysis, we begin to see how some behaviours influence the heart rate of the dog. Excitement ? Stress or Relief ? You will also find out how some of our human behaviours can affect the dog in his daily life.
