Abstract : The major emphasis of this past year's research effort toward characterizing the responses of the cardiovascular system of the military working dog has been to obtain renal hemodynamic information from dogs involved in various stages of obedience, scouting, tracking, and aggression training with technical assistance from Military Working Dog Center personnel. Through the use of a renal model concept developed in this laboratory, intrarenal hemodynamic variations induced by a situational stimuli have been examined. In addition to the major goal of studying cardiovascular responses in dogs, a corollary effort has been to further develop and evaluate the renal model and to continue to improve the reliability of the measurements by improving the reliability of the data acquisition system. As a result of these studies, five papers are in press and two additional manuscripts are being prepared for submission. (Author)
