Main Project Information
Goal Help researchers learn more about dogs (including your dog!).
Task Record and share specific interactions with your dog.
Where Global, anywhere on the planet

You’ll learn your dog’s cognitive style by playing fun, science-based games –- an experience that gives you the insight you need to make the most of your relationship with your best friend.

A key aspect of the Dognition methodology is our use of Citizen Science – research that can be conducted by everyone, not just people with Ph.D.s. By gathering this data we can begin to understand more about all dogs, much more quickly and on a broader scale than if scientists had to conduct this research themselves.

How to Join

You begin the Dognition experience by playing a series of science-based games that will reveal your dog’s unique abilities. This knowledge is the first step in creating an even stronger connection with your dog – a connection that can help you be the best owner you can be for your furry friend. Learning who your dog is as an individual will help you make the most of the time you spend together.
