A Westport dog behavior researcher — that’s 5 words I never thought I’d type — is seeking participants for 2 research studies on communication between dogs and humans.
One is an hour-long in-person study in Westport. Using “fun, non-invasive behavioral tests” — whew, that’s a relief — this study investigates your dog’s responses to human communication signals.
Human participants must be at least 18 years old. Your dog can be much younger — just 4 months old — and should be both healthy and up-to-date with vaccinations (or titers, whatever that means).
The 2nd study is online. It takes 30 minutes, and investigates human interpretations of dog behavior. You’ll watch video clips and complete a survey.
You can participate if you are at least 18 years old. And you do not even need to have a dog (though I can’t imagine anyone who doesn’t own one reading this far).

Oh, yes: This research has been approved by Columbia University IRB – AAAE7861.
Whatever that means.
