  Description of Seminar/Conference

In this 90 minute webinar presentation, Ken McCort will explore the subject of Intentional Thinking in animals. Intentional thinking will be defined, exploring what it means in terms of behavior, as well as the levels involved in the process. We will then discuss how intentional thinking may lead to the ability of companion animals, especially dogs, to plot, plan, deceive and trick humans. This subject was first explored in the 1700's and has
been more recently revisited by philosopher Daniel Dennett Ph. D. in the late 1980's. This cognitive process is very important to understand by anybody involved in handling and training animals of all species.

A question and answer session will follow, moderated by Dr. Monique Udell.
