  Description of Seminar/Conference

Domestic dogs have shown remarkable communicative skills with humans. These abilities allow dogs to solve different problems and achieve desired objects in their ordinary lives. However, the mechanisms underlying the communication between dogs and human capacities are still unclear.

There is an intense debate between high-level and low-level explanations, regarding the role of domestication and ontogeny (or life history) in the development of these skills.

In this 90 minute talk, Dr. Bentosela will describe several approaches to study the role of learning and experiences during ontogeny on interspecific communicative responses in dogs.

Discussion will follow, moderated by Dr. Monique Udell.

90 minute online webinar, Live from Argentina. To be recorded and available "OnDemand" after the lecture.
