Note from dog
Normally, I hand NOTE FROM DOG over to a pup who has earned a starring role in a current story, but this time around, I asked them if I might have their permission to write this NOTE because a lot has happened since we sent our last one at the end of November.

This dog is a genius

Genius Dog Challenge

Enter the Genius Dog Challenge

Do you think your dog is a genius? I know mine is. 🙂

Every Wednesday, until December 16, the Genius Dog Challenge is broadcast live on Facebook and YouTube, attracting tens of thousands of viewers.

If your dog can identify multiple objects and you want to participate in the Challenge, you can apply here. You can learn how the training is conducted the website and watch all the videos on the project’s YouTube channel.

This research is conducted in Budapest, Hungary at ELTE University under the Department of Ethology and the Family Dog Project

Genius dogs are FAST learners

All dogs are smart but some are exceptional. We tested 6 dogs who knew the names of many toys and found that they could learn the names of 12 new toys in one week.
