Dognition

Postby Amanda » Mon Oct 06, 2014 8:42 am

Anybody heard of this? I might like to try it. I seems very interesting. https://www.dognition.com

Basically it is a set of dog games to help test your dog's abilities and find their strengths. Points of measurement are memory, communication, cunning, empathy, and reasoning.

They mentioned it on 60 minutes last night and it sounded interesting. I haven't looked at the site, but I'll be interested to hear what you think of it.

I'd never heard of it, so I searched for opinions of it and found Patricia McConnell's, which I am still reading but which I post here anyway. :wink:

Good review, Connie. The price is only $19 now. No way would I pay $59. I don't understand Landis very well at all. I know what he gets excited about but day to day he is just a different kind of dog.

I saw this on 60 Minutes as well. Interesting. But I don't know if Dognition is ready for a Beelzepup. I don't even know if Ronan understands Ronan. LOL!
