Human- dog communication is something magical and unique. For years, scientists have been avoiding to study dogs, considering them to be too…boring, or too corrupted by humans maybe.
But things have changed, and ethologists have been focusing more and more on studying the dogs’ cognitive abilities, proving every single day what most dog owners already know: we communicate, we understand each other, we belong together. Dogs; natural habitat is where we are. They don’t belong in nature, they belong with us. They evolved to belong with us, to communicate with us and to need us just like every species needs its own kind to survive. This is a very simplified video, based on what I could remember (or what I wanted to remember) from everything I have read about the topic, so if you have the time, take a look at the pointing experiments. They are so simple and so awesome.
