The Horowitz Dog Cognition Lab is run by Dr. Alexandra Horowitz, author of Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know. This research group is based in New York City, and they study the behavior and cognition of pet dogs. They are investigating play between dogs and people. Their goal is to catalog all the ways – traditional, original or creative – people play with their dogs. This is a rare opportunity for dog owners across the globe to get involved in scientific research into dog behavior.
All you need to do is upload a video of you and your dog playing. They need both you and your dog in the video. Here is the link for you to submit your videos. They are accepting submissions until spring.
