There is a lot of discussion on what the social structure of a dog really is. Some believe it is similar to how wolves behave in captivity. Some believe it more closely resmembles that of wolf families in the wild. Some believe it's neither and that dogs are unique in this regard. In this module students will first be exposed to all these different views and then we will be encouraged to study the topic on its own, on free ranging dogs and report back their findings. This is a module that will require access to free ranging dogs and involves field work. It's really the very first introduction to how one can do a formal study on street dogs and our hope is that it will encourage more students to do more street dog studies.
