Do you have a working farm dog?

With concerns for farmers' mental health being very much to the fore lately, student Jennifer Sadler is currently investigating whether working with a dog is beneficial – to both human and canine.

As part of her studies with the University of Exeter, Ms Sadler is conducting an open survey to gauge people's opinion and experiences around the positives and negatives of the master and mutt dynamic.

If you currently work on a farm in the UK and are aged 18+, she would appreciate having you complete the survey linked below. You do not need to own a dog to answer the survey, and your response will remain confidential and anonymous. Please feel free to share this with family and friends in the farming community.

The project has been ethically reviewed and approved by the university. For full details of the project and participation, see the consent and information sheets in the link.
