Understanding how dogs think

DognitionOur youngest, who goes by PetKid on his blog, is giving away a free Dognition assessment – read on. He’s currently studying dog psychology in an online course. He’s shared a bit about it on his blog, along with a related resource for testing your dog’s way of seeing the world through games. It’s called Dognition. We had a lot of fun doing those games/tests with Reggie, and now PetKid is starting to share what he has learned.

He’s also offering a free Dognition assessment (worth $19 USD) to one lucky winner at his blog (the draw is Feb 7th). He’s hoping to expand his learning and to connect with other dog owners who are truly interested in their dog’s abilities and strengths.

Either way, you might want to go over and check out what PetKid has to say and sign up for his giveaway. It doesn’t matter where you live – his contest is worldwide.

  1. Hello, has anyone read Fifteen Dogs by Andre Alexis? I’m starting to look at our Scruffy differently – something about the way he eyes me up while sleeping on my pillow – it’s an interesting book that explores what happens when dogs are given human traits and abilities – do they end up acting as humans with all our foibles? Read it and find out.

    1. Hi John, nice to see you here. Fifteen Dogs is completely new to me, and looks utterly fascinating. Absolutely something I’m going to read. Thanks so much for the recommendation. I quite enjoyed The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, another dog book, as it’s focused on a family who take an approach to breeding dogs that is similar to our own dog’s breeders and gets at the idea of communication between dogs and humans.

I'd love to hear your thoughts
