Human-Animal Interaction Lab

The Human-Animal Interaction Laboratory (HAIL) is in the Department of Psychology at Bemidji State University. HAIL conducts research on human-animal interaction, investigating the processes and outcomes of humans interacting with non-human animals, as well as developing instruments to measure human-animal variables. The laboratory is directed by Dr. Angela Fournier. Research assistants are undergraduate students in psychology.

Human-Animal Interaction Scale (HAIS)

The Human-Animal Interaction Scale (HAIS) is a 24-item self-report instrument designed to describe and quantify an individual's interaction with a non-human animal. After interacting with an animal, the respondent reports on a 5-point Likert scale the degree to which they engaged (e.g., not at all, a great deal) in specific behaviors (e.g., watch, pet, groom) with the animal. Respondents also report on the animal's behavior, rating the degree to which the animal engaged in specific behaviors (e.g., sniff, lick, initiate interaction).
