Articles on Animal Training

This is a collection of articles on Animal Training from JAAWS in relation to the studies of the human-animal relationship. The Journal of Applied Animal Welfare Science (JAAWS) is the leading peer-reviewed journal on the science of animal welfare for veterinarians, scientists and public policy makers. It presents articles and reports on practices that demonstrably enhance the welfare of wildlife, companion animals and animals used in research, agriculture and zoos.
