    Hello, I am currently studying a level 3 Animal Behaviour and Welfare course. I am doing my dissertation project about if neutering has an effect on animal behaviour. If you have or had a dog neutered please could you fill out my questionnaire. It is all confidential and will take between 5-10 minutes. Thank you in advance. Please message me if you have any questions or any feedback will be appreciated.

    Done!

    A couple of feedback points:

    1) The question about your dog's age, 'How old is your dog? (rounded up to nearest year)' is ambiguous. My dog has just turned 11, so rounding up' would make him 12, whereas 'to nearest year' would make him 11. I put 11, as that is what I think you mean.

    2) My dog did calm down gradually after neutering, but as he was an adolescent, I would expect him to calm down anyway - so it would be wrong to conclude from this (and similar responses) that neutering caused the changes in behaviour.

    Thank you so much.

    This is great feedback, I will change the wording of the age question to (rounded to the nearest year).

    I will definitely take age into consideration for my results. It’s an extremely important factor and it’s something I can talk about in my discussion.

    Thank you again and for your feedback I really do appreciate it.

    Done. Didn't complete all because mine wasn't spayed for behaviour reasons but hope it helps and good luck! :)
