    Relational Factors Affecting Dog Social Attraction to Human Partners.Manuela Wedl, Iris Schöberl, Barbara Bauer, Jon Day & Kurt Kotrschal - 2010 - Interaction Studies 11 (3):482-503.
    We previously showed that owner personality and human-dog relationship predicted the performance of a human-dog dyad in a practical task. Based on the same data set we presently investigate the effects of individual and social factors on the social attraction of dogs to their owners. Twenty-two male and female owners and their intact male dogs were observed during a “picture viewing” test, where we diverted the owner's attention away from their dog whilst it was permitted to move freely around the (...)

    Influence of Socially Involved Hand-Raising on Life History and Stress Responses in Greylag Geese.Josef Hemetsberger, Isabella B. R. Scheiber, Brigitte M. Weiß, Didone Frigerio & Kurt Kotrschal - 2010 - Interaction Studies. Social Behaviour and Communication in Biological and Artificial Systemsinteraction Studies / Social Behaviour and Communication in Biological and Artificial Systemsinteraction Studies 11 (3):380-395.
    Animals are hand-raised in a variety of contexts, including experimental research. This has been criticized frequently as producing animals with species-untypical behaviour. Here we compare life histories of 330 hand-raised and 631 gooseraised Greylag geese from a free-flying flock to determine whether hand-raising affected life history, reproductive variables and behaviour. We found little differences in life histories or reproductive variables of hand-raised and goose-raised geese. However, hand-raised females had lower life expectancies than goose-raised ones, mainly due to predation during breeding. (...)

  4. Context-Specific Arousal During Resting in Wolves and Dogs: Effects of Domestication?Hillary Jean-Joseph, Kim Kortekaas, Friederike Range & Kurt Kotrschal - 2020 - Frontiers in Psychology 11.
    Due to domestication, dogs differ from wolves in the way they respond to their environment, including to humans. Selection for tameness and the associated changes to the autonomic nervous system regulation have been proposed as the primary mechanisms of domestication. To test this idea, we compared two low-arousal states in equally raised and kept wolves and dogs: resting, a state close to being asleep, and inactive wakefulness, which together take up an important part in the time budgets of wolves and (...)
