Abstract Introduction:<\b>
Several studies around the world indicate that having a dog is related to their owners’ walking time. DAPA tool is the most widely used questionnaire to evaluate factors related with dog owners walking. A cross-cultural Spanish translation of DAPA tool was made in Colombia, and it is necessary to assess its psychometric properties.Purpose: To assess the reliability and agreement of the DAPA tool Spanish version. Methods:<\b>
The DAPA tool Spanish version was filled out by 91 dog owners, and a week later they filled it out again. For categorical data, Cohen’s kappa (Κ) or Weighted kappa and percentage agreement were used. For continuous data, Intraclass Correlation Coefficients (ICC) with 95% confidence intervals (95% CI), Bland–Altman plots and limits of agreement (LoA) were calculated. Results:<\b>
The test­retest reliability was good for 68.5% of the items with ICC or Kappa’s ranged from 0.86 to 0.92 (almost perfect) and 26.6% of items from 0.41 to 0.60 (moderate). With the Bland and Altman methodology, for “times per week walking with your dog” the mean of differences was 0.121 (SD 3.3) and LoA range was -6.41 to 6.65; for “total time a week walking or jogging with your dog” mean of differences was 12 (SD 119,2) and LoA range was -221.7 to 245.7. Conclusions: We concluded that DAPA tool showed good reliability and agreement. The questionnaire can be used in Colombian population to provide a standardized measure of factors that affect dog owners’ walking with their dogs.
