Biography

Dr James C. Ha currently serves as Research Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at the University of Washington. He received his PhD in Zoology and Behavioral Ecology specifically from Colorado State University. Dr Ha has over 30 years of experience in teaching, research, and consulting in animal behaviour. He is the lead author on numerous scientific publications on animal behaviour, specifically dog behaviour. Dr Ha's current research interests revolve around applied animal behaviour: dogs, cats, and non-human primates, and welfare, enrichment, and behaviour modification methods. This work overlaps with his primary research interests which have, for many years, focused on complex social behaviour in highly cognitive animals (primates, corvids, and cetaceans).

Tracy L. Campion is the co-publisher of Pet Connection Magazine. She earned her undergraduate degree at the University of Washington and later received her M.S. in Primate Behavior from Central Washington University and her Postgraduate Diploma in Journalism from the London School of Journalism. Ms Campion has also participated in fieldwork exercises including the spatial ecology of Papio ursinus at the University of Cape Town's Zoology Department.
