            • 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.

              • 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.
