About Our Dog Lab

Welcome to the Horowitz Dog Cognition Lab! Our group is led by Professor Alexandra Horowitz, author of Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know and professor at Barnard College.

Our group studies the behavior and cognition of the domestic dog, Canis Familiaris. We observe companion dogs in their natural environments, and we recruit dogs and owners to participate in fun and interesting studies across the city.

Previous research has included the empirical research of anthropomorphisms, the use of attention and play signals in social play, dog-human play strategies, and intra-canid vocalizations.

Our studies investigate the dog’s perspective, and we would love for you to participate!

To join us, fill out our participation form, visit our website or send us an e-mail at dogcognitionstudy@gmail.com.

We look forward to meeting your dog!
