Abstract:

The present study was conducted in Teaching Veterinary clinical complex (TVCC) Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University and in different districts of Punjab on randomly selected 200 dog owners i.e., 100 from urban (Group I) and 100 from rural (Group II) with the help of pretested interview schedule. Various current practices followed by dog owners about dog feeding, housing, breeding and health and management were mentioned in the study. Group I dog owners were following more correct practices than their counter parts. So, the location and cognitive perspective of dog owners should be considered while organizing any extension programme. The feeding, housing, breeding and health and management practices were adopted by 50%, 56%, 27% and 49% in Group I; and 28%, 24%, 15% and 29% dog owners in Group II respectively. Unawareness was the main factor for non-adoption of correct practices, indicating the dire need of organization of more extension campaigns for creating awareness among masses about correct rearing practices.
