Understanding how Dogs Think
Have you ever seen a device or a program designed to correct a dog behaviour problem that explained how smartare and how they think? Most plans or gadgets enable owners, literally, to declare war on their hapless pets. Little or no concern is afforded to what the happen to think about them. In fact, the implication is that don't think at all ... either they just react to external stimuli like robots , or respond according to genetically controlled "drives." Dogs are rarely credited with the ability to solve a problem mentally; to analyze a situation; imagine ways to manipulate or control it, then take a pre-planned course of action toward a goal that was preconceived in the dog's mind. In short, the dog is considered a real dummy, then treated like a dummy. But this concept is not correct. Dogs are smart often with health problems. They can, and usually do, think rings around their owners. And they can do it because most owners have never learned how to think like a dog.
Understanding Non Verbal Thinking
·Some very convincing research suggests thatthink in sensory impressions; visual, sound and odour images, etc. This is not to say that they sit around on quiet days experiencing videos inside their brains. However, they likely share our ability to form and experience in their minds certain images, odours and sounds. The scientific basis for this idea came from Russia and was published in the US in 1973. A scientist name V.S. Rusinov was studying the electrophysiology of the brain and had several wired with brain wave equipment and radio transmitters. When the were brought into the lab from the kennels for experimental conditioning tests, the electroencephalograph machine was turned on to record their brain wave patterns. This was done at the same time each day, five days a week. One weekend, purely by accident, Rusinov brought a group of visitors into the lab and turned on the EEG machine. Lo, the dog that was normally schedule for tests during the week at that time was sending wave forms nearly identical to his regular working patterns! When the testing time passed, the ' brain waves soon returned to their normal 'at rest' forms. I never found any mention by Rusinov as to whether the out in the were actually performing their conditioned laboratory behaviorisms. Chances are they were not, but one thing is almost sure; compared to human experience in similar types of studies, the were apparently experiencing them mentally.
