The rediscovery of dogs for behavioural research may be one of the most exciting developments in recent years. However, increasing studies by researchers with different scientific backgrounds have led to the frequent application of methods without a clear understanding of their validity and limitation. This chapter summarizes some of the methodological issues from the perspective of dog ethology. It describes the genetic and environmental variables which affect dogs' behaviour, and which should be taken into account in the planning of behavioural observations and experiments.

Keywords:   methodological issues, behavioural research, observations, research methodology, dog ethology
