Lunch and Learn: Counting Canines and Dogs with Discipline- Update from the IWU Dog Scientists

Ellen Furlong, Assistant Professor, and the Illinois Wesleyan University dog scientists have been studying how dogs think and make decisions for a couple years now in the Bloomington-Normal area. We are at a point now where we have some interesting new findings about how dogs do math, exhibit (or don’t) self-control, and how they think about human (and dog) social partners. We are excited to share these results with the community!

This program is free and open to the public and will be held in the Gov. Fifer Courtroom on the 2nd floor of the Museum.
