In 1976, Ray and his wife Lorna founded the Livestock Guarding Dog Project at Hampshire College. This long-term investigation into the behavior of a new kind of dog for farmers and ranchers in the United States has resulted in greater understanding about early developmental behavior of dogs, and how early experience (or lack of it) can affect their adult behavior.
Recently, Ray (and his colleagues and students) have published over seventy papers on his dog research. His favorite publication, however, is the book Fishing Dogs, a humorous and iconoclastic look at dogs, fishermen and professors. His favorite co-author is Lorna Coppinger, and their greatest achievement so far is DOGS: A New Understanding of Canine Origin, Behavior, and Evolution (Scribner, NY, 2001; Univ. Chicago Press, 2002). His numerous travels around the world to study and talk about dogs are always supplemented by a day or two searching local waters for the perfect fish. http://www.hampshire.edu/faculty/rcoppinger.htmAvailable Presentations
