This chapter examines intra-specific interaction among dogs. It begins with a definition of ‘feral dog’. The term refers in general to dogs that differ from their domestic counterparts because they have not been exposed to close human contact early in their life (lack of socialization) but in the typical case they have a gene pool that is typical for domesticated dogs. Accordingly, one should refer to them as free-ranging not owned dogs. The discussions then turn to the behaviour and ethology of dingoes and free-ranging not owned dogs, along with comparisons of free-ranging not owned dogs with wolves.

Keywords:   socialization, animal behaviour, intraspecific interaction, feral dogs, dingoes, free-ranging not owned dogs
