|I'm not surprised at all by the differences between the indulged vs. the disciplined Beagles. At all. Granted, fostering has really taught me a lot in terms of the differences in the indulged vs. the disciplined when it comes to this breed.
I love science, to a fault. I do not love what people do in the 'name of science', or the way these animals typically get handled or treated and I never will. I've seen what laboratory dogs are like after their usefulness is gone and they try to incorporate them into the real world - a world they are completely unfamiliar with.
And the study leaves out a lot of valuable information, such as HOW the animals were disciplined and how much the indulged were indulged and in what ways, etc. Although, I bet they wouldn't want you to know how they were handled either. It also doesn't state when this study was completed.
I can't help but wonder where these poor dogs ended up and how they're doing today if they're even still alive.
