Dog Behavior and Cognition | ASUx on edX | XSeries About Video
DR. CLIVE D. L. WYNNE: This
course wants to convert you
to a new way of looking at dogs.
They’re not just our best friends.
Many parts of the
world, dogs are vermin.
Some parts of the world,
dogs are what’s for dinner.
In our own world, dogs work their tails
for people, for farmers, for policemen.
In many walks of life we
utilize the skills of dogs.
Dogs are very, very
diverse in human lives.
And they’ve had an important role
in our lives for over 10,000 years.
We’ll talk about how dogs communicate
with us and with each other.
I want to tell you about how dogs think.
I want to tell you about
how dogs see the world,
and especially how they smell the world.
I want to broaden your understanding of
all the different things that dogs are
and that dogs can do for us.
So join Zefus and me for our adventure
into a deeper understanding of what
dogs are and their roles in our lives.
