What is the Thinking Dog Center?

The Thinking Dog Center at Hunter College empirically investigates human’s best friend, the domestic dog. At our Center, we study various aspects of dog behavior and cognition, as well as their relationship with humans. Our ultimate goal is to increase our understanding of these extraordinary furry friends in order to understand how dogs think about the world around them.
