In the Dognition Assessment, dogs play multiple warm-up games to get acquainted before starting.
A dog learning a thousand words is nothing to sniff at. But what is truly remarkable about Chaser, the Border Collie who has taken the world by storm, is how she learns words. Chaser makes inferences in a similar way to human children. When Chaser played the game that tested the same ability in the citizen science project Dognition, not surprisingly, she was off the charts.
