Founded by renowned primatologist and conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) is a global nonprofit that empowers people to make a difference for all living things. While most famous for her groundbreaking research on chimpanzee behavior, Dr. Goodall is also lifelong dog lover.
Dognition is a supporter of JGI's mission to better understand and protect our natural world and to create a worldwide network of young people who care deeply for their human community, for all animals, and for the environment -- and who take responsible action to care for them.
ThunderShirt’s mission is to bring relief to the millions of dogs and their families struggling to cope with anxieties. ThunderShirt applies a gentle pressure to a dog's torso creating a calming effect for many dogs. Along with the ThunderShirt, the company also produces a wide range of products that help dogs with anxiety issues or other common issues to help improve the relationship we have with our dogs. Dognition and ThunderShirt have teamed up to better understand if there are correlations between anxiety and the mind, and to bring more understanding and happiness to dog loving homes.
