Quotes

...rules that guided the sheep dogs behaviour --- (1) collect the sheep when they are dispersed and (2) drive them forward when they are aggregated. "At every time step in the model, the dog decides if the herd is cohesive enough or not. If not cohesive, it will make it cohesive, but if it’s already cohesive the dog will push the herd towards the target,” said Strömbom in the I&T magazine. When the simple algorithm for herding sheep was discovered by scientists and mathemeticians at the University of Swansea through observation, the results will be for programming robots to possibly be used for situations like herding sheep, moving livestock, clean up environmental accidents, like oil spills, or even crowd control."
Dee said: "This is an exciting opportunity for equine owners in Britain to actively take part in scientific research and contribute towards a study that seeks to improve the health and welfare of British equines...each and every horse and pony is an eligible candidate and can join the study, regardless of past or present health status.”"
Chantell, 37, of The Drive, who have other rescue dogs, said: "We are all dog lovers and have three other dogs."
"In its worst form canine epilepsy can be life threatening to dogs, but it is a dog's long-term quality of life that is most affected. It can also take a toll on the owners who have to manage this unpredictable, uncontrollable condition."
