Hi Lindsay,

Insightful question — that is exactly what we do: both old and new answers are saved with a timestamp. Another student and I will soon be mining survey data to determine the age (or approximate age) of dogs when their owner gave a survey response. This will be quite important for surveys that relate to canine age-related cognitive decline.

We have more plans to track changes in behavior over time, such as encouraging owners who register puppies to return for new surveys as their dog ages.
