Research and Publications

A Pleasant Dog's mission statement includes a commitment to improve the lives of people and dogs through education, positive reinforcement training, and research. Our team includes members who are passionate about evidence based research and methodology.

A Pleasant Dog has presented our research on Problematic Behaviors in Companion Dogs since the Covid 19 pandemic with Dr. Jill Sackman DACVB and Dr. Laura E. Dodge, to the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists at the Veterinary Behavior Symposium in Austin, Texas in June of 2022. We are continuing our commitment to research with plans to publish this study with its follow data in process.

Future research topics for 2022 and 2023 include: Safety and Efficacy of Behavior Medication in Young Dogs; and Efficacy of Classical Conditioning Together With Medication in Separation Anxiety Treatment.

If you have a research topic you would like us to consider, or would like to donate funds toward our research endeavors, please reach out to get@apleasantdog.com.

"Thanks so much for presenting at ACVB. You were amazing and your work is so important. We're all talking about more dogs with behavior concerns, but it's really good to have data to back it up! [...]This work [,A Pleasant Dog's Research on Covid Behavior,] is really important to shelters where so many people feel like we have much more challenging dogs than previously."
