About this course

Skip About this course

The world as it presents itself to dogs is not the same as the world humans experience. While dogs are far from blind, the experience of smell and sound plays a far more important role in their lives than ours.

In this course, you will learn how dogs think and comprehend the world around them. You will learn how simple relationships between objects like strings and tubes are completely incomprehensible to dogs, but social relationships are powerfully salient to both species.

This course is part of the Dog Behavior and Cognition XSeries.
