JM_ Posted December 5, 2016 Share Posted December 5, 2016 Neat article on some new research on how self-aware dogs probably are: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/dogs-remember-more-than-we-think-180961219/ It doesn't surprise me one bit as a dog owner, but I've also worked with some clients who have guide dogs. One dog I know of can do some amazing things like open doors, but the really cool thing she can do is judge traffic situations. She has been trained on the meaning of walk lights, etc. but she can also judge when its not safe for her owner even on a green light, and a car is doing something potentially unsafe. Its pretty cool to see in person. The dog understands her role and that she has the responsibility to make sure everyones safe. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
