Dog Attentional States

Ever wonder if your dog pays attention to where you’re looking? Do they “beg” for food when you’re looking at them but stop when you turn away? Do you think dogs learn how to do this, or are they born with that ability? Help us find out! 

We are currently looking for dogs to participate in our attentional state study. If you have a dog that you would like to enroll, we want to hear from you! There are no special requirements for this study, however if your dog has food allergies please let us know in advance: we use broiled chicken in this study but we can accommodate dogs that have special dietary restrictions. 

The HAI Lab is also seeking dogs with experience in competitive fetching/catching sports (such as Flyball or Frisbee) to participate in a cognition study. Click here to learn more! 

Please contact Lauren.Brubaker [at]  if you are interested in participating in this study!
