A scientific perspective on companion animal behaviour and welfare, by veterinary behaviourist Dr Rachel Casey
Dr Rachel Casey
I'm a veterinary surgeon, animal behaviourist and welfare scientist working at Dogs Trust and at The Royal Veterinary College in London. I have a PhD in animal behaviour and lead a team investigating aspects of companion animal behaviour and welfare. I am also a clinician, helping owners with animals that show behaviour problems.
I lecture about the behaviour of dogs, cats and horses to a wide range of audiences, contribute to various media (e.g. BBC2's 'Cat Watch 2014: The New Horizon Experiment' and Channel 4's 'Dogs: Their Secret Lives'), and I am actively involved in the promotion of high welfare standards for companion animals through veterinary and animal welfare organizations.
