Welcome to the Canine Cognition Center at Boston College. We are a research center devoted to learning more about the ways pet dogs think and interact with humans. We design simple, interactive games to play with dogs in order to discover what dog minds are capable of. We have puzzles designed to explore how dogs solve problems, treat-finding games to discover how dogs learn from humans, magic shows to see what dogs expect to happen in the world around them, and much, much more!
All of our studies are designed to be simple and fun for any dog. So no matter your dog’s age, breed, intelligence, or training level, we have studies available for you! If you are a dog owner in the Boston area, we would love to have your dog as one of our canine volunteers.
