Project: Play With Your Dog
|Presented By||Horowitz Dog Cognition Lab, Barnard College|
|Goal||Help researchers better understand the dog/man relationship.|
|Task||Record and share a video of you playing with your dog!|
The Horowitz Dog Cognition Lab in NYC is investigating the different ways people and dogs play together, and we need your help (well, you and your dog’s help). We are cataloguing all the ways people play with their dogs and asking dog owners to submit short videos of their own dog-human play.
By participating in Project: Play with Your Dog, citizen scientists are providing valuable information into the nuances and intricacies of our relationships with dogs.
