  6. Has there been any research on dogs in Northern communities that pack and attack humans? Does this happen anywhere else?

    I would like to know why dogs in the North (and possibly elsewhere) do this, if they're provoked or so feral, they're almost wild and it's their way of surviving - are the news reports accurate? I can't help but link this to socio-economic issues and probably many other factors. Just wondering if you know of any research to direct me towards. I have read some of Dr. Boitani's work but nothing from Canada's North. Thanks.

  7. Is there any difference in the ”working” versus “show” lines of breeds in the profiles. Has this been tested for? It could be measured

    I have owned and know many of both lines of border collies and they are like two different breeds. The working lines seem to have a much greater sense and respect for personal space when running together in groups. By working lines I mean dogs still being selected and bred for their original function.
