Selected activities, Act(1) to Act(5) ranked by decrescendo order of importance by owner. Selected behavioural categories, Ctg(1): Reduced mobility; Ctg(2): Reduced mobility after exercise; Ctg(3): Reduced ability to change posture; Ctg(4): Reduced ability to change posture after rest or in the morning; Ctg(5): Resistance to manipulations. LCL: lower control limit; UCL: upper control limit.

Multinomial logistic regression for repeated measures: *significant odds ratio (OR). Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel (CMH) test: significant row mean scores difference (RMSD). Estimates were significant P-value (P) lower than 0.017 with Bonferroni’s adjustment.
