[VIDEO] Our Science Experiment

Eko and I may not be scientists, but we can play ones on the internet.  A couple weeks ago we watched a great documentary about dogs that discussed how dogs outperform even chimps when it comes to tests of social cognition.  Thankfully they also said that in regular words, so I learned that it means dogs watch human behavior for clues as to how they should behave.  This skill was demonstrated in the documentary with a demonstration of dogs watching a person point to one cup or the other before deciding which cup to check for a treat.  We recreated the experiment in the apartment with some pretty cool results – check it out!

 

 

If you try this experiment with your pup, let us know how it goes.  Happy weekend to all!
