Tufts university animal behavior clinic is currently conducting two studies in Border Collies.
1. Collecting behavior information of shadow/light chasing Border Collies through their questionnaire and 5-10 mls of blood sample from the dog for the genetic analysis. They also collect non-shadow/light chasing Border Collie information and blood samples too as a control group sample. They will reimburse all costs for blood sampling and shipping.
2. For affected dogs, they are also conducting treatment(medication)response study.
If you have interests to participate either/both study or any further questions, please contact Niwako Ogata at 508-887-4702 or Niwako.Ogata@tufts.edu
