Dogs' Understanding of Communicative Intentions
Our previous research revealed that dogs are more skilled at spontaneously reading human communicative cues (e.g. pointing gestures, etc.) than chimpanzees and other primates. To understand the origins of these skills, I have conducted research with puppies, wolves, New Guinea singing dogs, and chimpanzees. All of this research suggests that dogs, while cognitively unremarkable in many ways, also possess an unusual ability to read human communicative intentions.
