The role of pet dogs in helping children and young people with Tics

Posted on 11 May 2020


Researchers at the University of Nottingham are asking for parents of children with tics, who have a pet dog, to complete an online survey.

You will be asked about your relationship with the dog, your child’s relationship with the dog and the impact this might have on your child’s tics.  We are genuinely interested in your opinions and experiences, whether this be positive or negative.  

To find out more and take part in this survey, please click here or for further information please email:

This survey has been approved by the University of Nottingham Division of Psychiatry and Applied Psychology Ethics Committee. (Ref 1522)
