Randall Lockwood, Choose-A-Pooch
There's an article in the August 1984 issue of Family Computing magazine, by Bill Camarda — Behind The Screens: Family Dog. It's about Choose-A-Pooch, an Atari computer program created by Dr. Randall Lockwood, to help match people with the breed of dog that will work best in their living situation.
I interviewed Dr. Lockwood on November 10, 2017.
"Trying to get away from the fact that people were often choosing dogs based more on just appearance, without knowing that much about the breed."
