Dognition is not about ranking dog IQ scores. It’s about discovering which skills your own dog relies on to navigate the world — the ones your dog excels at as well as the challenges. Knowing your dog’s “cognitive style” can help shed light on where your best friend is coming from — and the new places your relationship can go. How You'll Discover Those Skills
What makes Dognition special is the participation of owners like you. Dognition is a leading example of "citizen science" - research developed by leading scientists that can be conducted by everyone, not just people with Ph.D.s. By collaborating with dogs and owners all around the world, we can begin to understand more about dogs, much more quickly and on a broader scale than researchers are able to do on their own.
