Dog House Blog, Treats On Tuesday!
Are you so clever you can fool your peoples into thinking you are dumb to get your own way? Do you ever run round in circles, or bark at random things to annoy your staff? Can you drive a bus? The Dognition site, based in North Carolina, uses questionnaires and games to help
servants owners determine how clever you are at
solving problems, or choosing to ignore you or genuinely finding things are
lost in translation. Dogs are assigned personality types with character traits
and these can be compared to other dogs of the same breed, age and size, as
well as with other breeds. It can be used by our simple owners to learn
more about how we think. Pet owners begin by filling out a personality
questionnaire about their dog, including whether it is well-behaved, whether it
listens to instructions, how it responds to being left alone or told off etc.
Based on the results of this test, the owners are given a series of science based
games, designed to test a dog's level of empathy, communication and cunning (never).
They can also test whether we are
trustworthy and loyal, or wily and devious (scandalous).
Various tests can be viewed on the Dognition site here or on Youtube. Handle with care as we don’t want to be giving all our secrets away. Would be fun to try with our feline and other anipals too. So make it a Treaty Tuesday and have fun with mum.
