Paw Games Study

Paw Games Study

The Paw Games Study is no longer enrolling new participants. 

One of the ways that dogs explore the world is through play behavior. However, it is not well-known how factors such as breed, sex, and life experience influence how dogs play.In this study, we are investigating how different dogs play with objects and solve puzzles.
