|Title:||Maternal Influence on Grass-Eating Behaviour in Puppies||Contributor(s):||Bjone, Samantha (author); Brown, Wendy (author) ; Price, Ian (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/8938||Abstract:||Very little is known about grass-eating behaviour or its origin in the domestic dog, 'Canis familiaris'. Grass eating is observed in both wolves and dogs, suggesting that the behaviour was preserved through domestication and is innate. The nursing mother may also influence grass-eating behaviour in her puppies. The current study investigated the influences of the mother, and puppy age, on grass eating in 5- to 7-week-old puppies.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Details:||CSF 2008: Canine Science Forum, Budapest, Hungary, 5th - 9th July, 2008||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the Canine Science Forum 2008 - On dogs and related Canids: from genes through behaviour to society, p. 108-108||Publisher:||Department of Ethology, Eötvös Loránd University||Place of Publication:||Budapest, Hungary||Field of Research (FOR):||060801 Animal Behaviour||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||839901 Animal Welfare||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://csf2008.elte.hu/||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 185
