Dog Emotion and Cognition

“Dog Emotion and Cognition” is a course designed to introduce the exciting new science of dog psychology to any level of dog enthusiast. In learning about dogs, students are introduced to evolutionary and cognitive theory, learn about experimental methodology, see how dogs compare to other species, and even have the chance to try some of the cognitive games they learn about with their own dogs. The course is a great introduction to the field of animal cognition and animal behavior but is also relevant to anyone interested in human evolution or even dog training.
