Ever wonder how your dog experiences the world? Join the Horowitz Dog Cognition Lab at Barnard College in NYC and help us learn more about dog behavior. Our group is supervised by Dr. Alexandra Horowitz, author of Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know. We are looking for companion dogs and owners to participate in a study about the extent of the dogʼs sense of smell.
