中文摘要

The objective of the study was to determine the effect of the number of feeders on the common behavior of dogs kept in a group and individually. Twelve dogs, male and female of 6 each, were randomly allocated into each treatment. The method of keeping was divided into 1 dog and 3 dogs and different numbers of feeders, on day 1 Treatment 1 (number of dogs, feeders, pens = 1: 1: 1) 12 pens, day 2 Treatment 2 (number of dogs, feeders, pens = 3: 1: 1) 4 pens, day 3 Treatment 3 (number of dogs, feeders, pens = 3: 3: 1) 4 pens until every treatment was repeated 3 times, 9 days in total. Feeding time was 17:40 until 18:10 daily. The results indicated that dogs eating behavior more concentrated on 18:00 which was feeding time. The aggressive behavior also happened more during this period. Female dogs feeding time was more longer than male dogs. The results induced more aggressive behavior in female than male dogs. The dominant dogs had longer feeding time, consequence had higher weight gain than lower social dogs. The dominant dogs had more aggressive behavior than lower social order dogs.
