Although dogs are the most widespread and abundant of all carnivores, the role of the dog in human cultures and its impact on the environment have rarely been studied. These subjects are reviewed in the context of canine rabies. To understand the epizootiology of canine rabies, the ecology and population biology of the dog must be considered. Information on dog populations (in relation to different habitats, cultures, social strata of human populations and epizootiological situations) was… 
Canine Rabies and its Implications for Human Health in Sri Lanka
TLDR
The rabies situation in Sri Lanka is examined with respect to trends in human and canine rabies and identifies challenges ahead for rabies elimination.
The epidemiology of rabies and canine distemper in the Serengeti, Tanzania
TLDR
Higher-density dog populations to the west of the Serengeti National Park are the most likely reservoir of both rabies and canine distemper in the Seregeti and disease control strategies should therefore focus on controlling infection in these populations.
Transmission dynamics and economics of rabies control in dogs and humans in an African city
TLDR
A single parenteral dog rabies-mass vaccination campaign achieving a coverage of at least 70% appears to be sufficient to interrupt transmission of rabies to humans for at least 6 years, and beyond a time-frame of 7 years, it seems to be more cost-effective to combine parenTERal dog-vaccination campaigns with human PEP compared to human P EP alone.
A SURVEY OF COMMUNAL LAND DOGS IN ZIMBABWE WITH REFERENCE TO IMPROVING RABIES VACCINATION COVERAGE
The majority of Zimbabwe's dog population exists in communal lands; it is here that the country's canine rabies is probably most prevalent. Results are presented of a survey of the communal land dog
Incidence of canine rabies in N'Djaména, Chad.
Control of Dog Rabies
Characteristics of owned dogs in rabies endemic KwaZulu-Natal province, South Africa
TLDR
The study indicates the majority of owned dogs can be handled by at least one member of the household, thus can be made readily accessible for rabies vaccination during a campaign, aiding government veterinary services in their current and ongoing efforts to eliminate canine rabies in the province.

Dog ecology and dog rabies control.
TLDR
Dog rabies control programs have been successful in the past, but most are failing today, and program development should follow managerial principles and take into consideration the biology of dog populations as well as cultural constraints.

Population density and ecology of dogs in Nigeria : a pilot study.
TLDR
The population dynamics of dogs is an important factor in the epidemiology of endemic canine rabies, and the epidemiological and public health implications of large urban dog populations, partial confinement and free range of owned dogs in urban and rural communities include promotion of straying, gathering of dogs in packs, easy contact with strays and wildlife, and increased risk of human exposure to dog bites and to rabies.
Economics of human and canine rabies elimination: guidelines for programme orientation.
TLDR
In countries where resources allocated to rabies control are inadequate in both the health and veterinary sectors, the comparison in costs and effectiveness of the two programme strategies for rabies elimination strongly suggests that consideration should be given to a national programme of dog Rabies elimination.
The epidemiology of fox rabies in Europe.
TLDR
Rabies virus strains from such divergent hosts as bats or foxes show very strong cross-reaction in serum neutralization in all parts of the world, which would suggest that rabies virus has not substantially changed in 4000 years of observation.
Ecological and Epidemiological Data Requirements for the Planning of Dog Rabies Control
TLDR
A variety of epidemiological and ecological factors has to be considered for vaccination as well as for dog population control campaigns to reduce the number and the reproduction of unsupervised dogs, and to reduce habitat carrying capacity by giving up littering.
Ecology and epidemiology of fox rabies.
  • J. Blancou
  • Biology
    Reviews of infectious diseases
  • 1988
TLDR
The spread of fox rabies is greatly favored by the characteristics of the genus Vulpes--ubiquity, broad diet, prolific nature, and its particular ethology and ecology, so natural mechanisms that also can terminate outbreaks are discussed.
Carnivore rabies: ecological and evolutionary aspects / La rabbia nei Carnivori: aspetti ecologici ed evolutivi
TLDR
Populations of a number of species of the order Carnivora sustain independent rabies epidemics in different parts of the world and these virus and host properties determine rates of infectious contacts and all other epidemiological parameters such as incidence, prevalence, morbidity, and mortality rates.

Analysis of the age distribution in the pet population of dogs in the community of Manhattan, Kansas from 1968 to 1979 revealed that the distribution was stationary and the rate of population change

TLDR
It was concluded that the species in dogs and wild carnivores was Echinococcus granulosus, and the main cycle of transmission was between dogs and domestic livestock.
