A dog-lover from Northamptonshire has found the perfect PhD project. Lecturer and part-time student, Claire Mitchell, is studying dogs' faces and she is asking owners to send her pictures of their pets.
Claire is measuring hundreds of diffferent dogs' skulls as part of a 6-year study. She is hoping to find out more about the link between a dog's head shape and its health.

Claire wants people to send her photos of their dogs' faces, so she can collect their measurements. More than 200 people have already been in touch. Claire is hoping to create new categories for dogs' face shapes.
Vet, Jeremy Onyett, thinks that will help people keep their dogs healthy.
