Interested in volunteering to take part in our dog cognition research?

We're always looking for canine volunteers to take part in our dog cognition research studies.

Your help is invaluable for the successful completion of these studies.

Our experience shows us that people and dogs enjoy participating in research as much as we do.  

By completing this form you are allowing the Department of Psychology to use the information submitted to contact you about potential research opportunities.

The Department of Psychology will contact you by email or by phone when researchers are recruiting participants for a research study.

We will not share your information with third-parties.
