  Description of Seminar/Conference
  
 

This lecture will present findings from 3 areas of study that may contradict typical beliefs about canine cognition. In the first set of experiments, we staged false emergencies to test whether or not a dog would attempt to save an owner who appeared to be experiencing an emergency situation. In two other sets of experiments, we tested numerical discrimination, or "counting" in dogs, as well as spatial memory. The performance of dogs in these experiments proved to be very different from has been observed previously in other species. The findings from these three very different areas of research will be integrated into a general discussion of the study of cognition in domestic dogs.

Discussion will follow, moderated by Monique Udell, PhD
