    About Rachel Orritt

    Following my preclinical Veterinary Science studies at Bristol Veterinary School, I graduated with a BSc in Animal Behaviour and Welfare from the University of Bristol. I was subsequently awarded a UFAW Scholarship to investigate laying hen welfare at the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science (NVH), where I was later employed as a Research Assistant. Prior to starting my PhD, I worked as a Rehoming Coordinator for the RSPCA. My research focusses on dog aggression and dog bite prevention.
