Have you ever wondered what your dog was thinking? Professor Alexandra Horowitz of Columbia University offers new insight to understanding the way a dog’s mind works. Hear Horowitz discuss the societal roles dogs have developed now, and throughout history in her talk, “Considering Dogs,” from the UC Berkeley Graduate Council.
In this episode of “Conversations with History,” Horowitz discusses what led her to write her best-selling book, Inside of a Dog, in which she analyzes the cognition of dogs with consideration of their wolf ancestry, anatomy, cognitive skills, and the way dogs have adapted to life with humans.
Dogs and humans might be more connected than you might think. UC Davis, one of the most renowned veterinary schools in the country, has these clips to offer about Dog Blood Donors, Dogs Getting Cancer Care, and Police Dogs.
Did you know that dogs can also have obsessive compulsive disorder? Check out the Zoobiquity Series, in which clinicians and veterinarians discuss how the same diseases afflict more than just humans, comparing ways to diagnose and treat illnesses between species.
