at the Heimathaus Sittensen, Am Heimathaus 4, 27419 Sittensen, Northern Germany
Dogs in Motion – coherence of the skeleton, muscles and motor skills” With the largest global study ever on the locomotion of dogs in 327 dogs from 32 breeds, the team of Prof. Fischer has studied how breeding policy affects the movement of various races and published his findings in his book dogs in motion. This seminar will extensively cover the locomotion of dogs, supported by films and animations. Fluoroscopy imaging provides participants a unique understanding of canine biomechanics.
Prof. Martin S. Fischer is a professor at the Institute of Systematic Zoology and Evolutionary Biology with Phyletic museum at the Friedrich- Schiller University in Jena, Germany. Both he and, Dr Karin E. Lilje from Switzerland, were the leading researchers in the largest scale study ever carried out on the subject of locomotion in dogs.
