Special Issue "Sleep Behaviour and Physiology of Domestic Dogs"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 April 2020) | Viewed by 38858
Dogs, being one of the most common pets in Western societies and showing several human-analogue behaviours, have been intensively studied. It has been argued recently that, in addition to their awake-behaviours, dogs’ sleep-related functions are also both excellent models of comparable human functions as well as important for their well-being and veterinary treatment. This Special Issue will collect empirical research as well as opinion/review papers relating to canine sleep including, but not limited to, observations under natural conditions and laboratory-based research about broadly defined physiology and behaviour. Our aim is to bring together new and emerging findings from the field of canine sleep research in order to raise awareness of its importance and far-reaching relevance.
