Shedding Light on Dogs’ Understanding, plus Getting Started in Juniors

Editor Susan Chaney presents the findings of a researcher and lecturer in psychology at the University of Portsmouth in Portsmouth, England whose recent studies were the first to investigate how illumination effects dogs’ competition for food. If dogs steal food more often under low light levels, do they think they’re less likely to get caught? Learn about the lead researcher’s findings in Susan’s latest report.
