If you search for 'handedness' on Google, you will find a lot of good websites about human preferences for one hand/foot/eye than the other. If you search for 'paw preference' on Google Scholar, you will get a number of scientific articles about paw preference in dogs/cats/mice. However, you will not necessarily have access to the entire article in these cases--you may need to talk to a librarian about how to get these references.
