Daniel Mills is a leading academic authority on companion animal behaviour. He was the country’s first specialist in veterinary behavioural medicine, to be recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and received his Fellowship from the RCVS in recognition of his contributions to the field.
Professor Mills has published more than 100 full scientific research papers and more than 50 books and chapters for both professionals, (e.g. academics, animal trainers and those working in AAI) and the wider public. His work focuses primarily on the processes underlying individual differences in animals and effects of the human-animal bond. In recent years, he has increasingly focused on the benefits that animals can bring to individuals and wider society.
