Our Dog Lab studies the behavior and cognition of the domestic dog, Canis familiaris. We design and conduct studies that aim to reveal the dog’s perspective!
And we are not alone. Research groups across the globe investigate canids, and each group has its own interests and unique research questions.
People often wonder about the kinds of studies that are conducted in this field. The Research Assistants here at the Horowitz Dog Lab — students from Barnard College and Columbia University — are engaged in an article review project. After reading recently published scientific studies, they extract the main points and share them with you!
Our next few posts will share recently published research.
