Learning by Playing Fetch

Do you have a dog that loves to play Flyball or Frisbee? Maybe a dog that’s a fetch fanatic? The HAI Lab would love to meet you!

We are currently recruiting for dogs that have experience in competitive fetching or catching sports for a study that will examine how the opportunity to fetch can be used as a reward for learning a task. In addition to having experience in the above sports, we ask that dogs be at least 1 years old.

We expect that most dogs will take roughly half an hour to complete the study; however, because this study involves asking the dog to learn a new task at their own pace, the total time commitment may vary. 

If you would like to participate in this study, contact Lauren.Brubaker [at] oregonstate.edu for more information!
