    About This Project

    Do collies think differently than Labradors? Our preliminary evidence suggests yes – herding dogs (who track large numbers of animals) may reason about numbers more precisely than hunting dogs. However, this preliminary work has several limitations that must be overcome before we can conclude that selectively breeding dogs to serve particular functions has shaped the way they think. In this project we plan to implement the necessary controls to further explore this exciting yet preliminary work.
