About the Author
Dr. James C. Ha currently serves as Research Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at the University of Washington. He received his Ph.D. 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 behavior. He is the lead author on numerous scientific publications on animal behavior, specifically dog behavior. Dr. Ha's current research interests revolve around applied animal behavior: dogs, cats, and non-human primates, and welfare, enrichment, and behavior modification methods. This work overlaps with his primary research interests which have, for many years, focused on complex social behavior 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 field work exercises including the spatial ecology of Papio ursinus at the University of Cape Town's Zoology Department.
