Abstract

Domestic dogs display complex roaming behaviours, which need to be captured to realistically model the spread of direct-contact infectious diseases such as rabies. We used GPS units to collect behavioural data and characterise roaming patterns of domestic dogs, then developed contact distance kernels. Outputs from this model incorporating heterogeneous contacts clearly display how roaming patterns influence disease spread in domestic dogs.
