The 9 Dognition Profiles  

Ace-badge
Maverick-badge
Charmer-badge

An accomplished problem solver with great communication skills

A cheeky wolfishness and a strong independent streak are what make a Maverick so successful

A smooth operator, the Charmer relies on her secret
weapon - you

Socialite-badge
Protodog-badge
Renaissance-dog-badge

Social graces are the keys to the Socialite's success

The Protodog is reminiscent of the first dogs that began their relationship with early mankind

The Renaissance Dog is good at a little bit of everything

Expert-badge
Stargazer-badge
Einstein-badge

The Expert can solve many problems on his own, but he is still part of the team

There's more going on in the Stargazer's mind
than meets the eye

What is Citizen Science?

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.
