    Finally opened.

    Comparative cognition on dogs has only recently been studied by scientists as canines were considered a man made species.

    I recently purchased a DVD with information from the Comparative Cognition Conference 2009.

    http://www08.homepage.villanova.edu/...009program.pdf

    Could not help myself and experimented with my dogs on "their" tests.

    It was interesting. Never more so, than confirming each dog's differences, temperaments and responses when selecting the correct pointed article (in my case bumpers), ie one vocalised in frustration. He can also vocalise at normal training.

    Another learnt the game so quickly!!!!

    Questions were asked in the DVD, do canines feel failure? Good DVD. Fun on a rainy day.
