Free online dog emotion and cognition course from duke univeristy [Link]

https://www.coursera.org/learn/dog-emotion-and-cognition

Was initially browsing coursera for classes on coding and browsed around for my other interests. Only 2 chapters in myself but it seems interesting so far.

There are practical activities to try with your own dog throughout.

edit: it might be beneficial to update this thread with your favorite TIL from the class to let others know what kind of stuff is in there.

[News][Link] Brian Hare offers free Dog Cognition course on Coursera!

Hello everyone!

I follow an individual named Brian Hare on Facebook. He is the co-author of "The Genius of Dogs" and founded the Duke Canine Cognition Center. He is offering a canine cognition course through Coursera, which is free to sign up for and the courses are all free as well.

This is the link to his course.

I figured I'd let others know about this opportunity to learn more for free and at your own pace, earning a certificate of completion at the end.

Mods, feel free to delete if you feel the post is not suited to being here.

TL;DR: Free course on canine cognition taught by a cool dude so sign up!

[x-post from r/dogs] Coursera - Dog Emotion & Cognition

Saw this on r/dogs and thought this group may be interested. I've signed up and will let you know how it goes.

It's a free 8-week, self-paced course that started on July 3. Here's the link and description:

> Dog Emotion and Cognition is a course designed to introduce the exciting new science of dog psychology to any level of dog enthusiast. In learning about dogs you will be introduced to evolutionary and cognitive theory, learn about experimental methodology, see how dogs compare to other species, and even have the chance to try some of the cognitive games you learn about with your own dog. The course is a great introduction to the field of animal cognition and animal behavior but is also relevant to anyone interested in human evolution or even dog training. When you finish you will think about your dog in a new way, will be ready to apply your new knowledge, and will be prepared to take higher level classes in the evolutionary or cognitive sciences.

[Discussion][Link] Free online dog cognition course.

Hi guys, I’ve been taking a free online course about dog emotion and cognition through Duke University online. I’m also doing the guided experiments along with my dog and I think I’m learning a lot about her spectrum of intelligence.

Here’s a link to the course.

A link to the experiments, which costs $15-20 (I can’t remember how much exactly) and your results/data are shared with scientists.

I think it'd be interesting for the sub to share their results for these experiments when the course is over!

[Link] Dog Emotion and Cognition class on Coursera

For those who don't know, Coursera is an online platform for MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course--usually free). I was browsing classes when I came across Dog Emotion and Cognition. It's an 8 week class that started July 3. Here's the description:

Hunde-Intelligenz ist hoch in dem Gebiet, Menschen zu verstehen. Hunde-Intelligenz ist niedrig bei "Physik", um's mal so zu sagen, z.B. Verständnis dafür, dass sich die Leine um den Baum wickelt, wenn Hund rechts um den Baum geht und Leinenhalter links.

Es gibt auf Coursera einen Kurs "dog cognition" (frei), ist ganz interessant.

I think the free course on dog behavior by Dr. Brian Hare at Duke University is still available. A valuable source and highly recommended especially if you are new!

I'm just a grad school applicant, but there's a really cool course on coursera on "dognition" with Brian Hare. It might be just review for you given the work you do, but it sure was fun to take :) https://www.coursera.org/learn/dog-emotion-and-cognition Good luck with your path!

Recently started working at a vet hospital as an extra set of hands, any online courses I can do/certificates I can get until I go to school?

So I was recently hired at a vet hospital in my small current city in British Columbia, Canada. I have worked with dogs before at a breeders where I dealt with lots of different medicines and helping our vet with examinations etc. I am extremely excited as it's been about two years since that job and I have been itching to get hired at an actual vet as it's something I know I want to do.

I am 21 years old, and I still need to finish some high school courses and upgrading before I will be eligible for a Canadian vet tech program. But until then, is there anything online I can do to further my credentials for school and future work? I have read about getting a pet first aid certificate and thought about taking some of these online courses from Coursera like an Animal Behavior and Welfare course, Dog Emotion and Cognition course and maybe even this Animal Behavior course.

Would any of you maybe recommend getting any of this as well as the pet first aid? I can't exactly write 'watched literally every single episode of Cesar Millan Dog Whisperer and really know what I'm doing when it comes to dogs and training' haha. All jokes aside, I would really love some ideas and recommendations for what I can do to improve my experience!

Thank you!

I figure human training might go in here too? I am still waiting to hear from my breeder but she's in a Very High covid area so I am not holding my breath. BUT in November I

  1. joined a MOOC on Coursera about Dog Emotional cognition (https://www.coursera.org/learn/dog-emotion-and-cognition/home/welcome its free)
  2. Listened to about a thousand Drinking From the Toilet episodes (especially enjoyed the Concept Training with Ken Ramirez episode. I think it would help people with retrieval or mobility type tasks)
  3. Joined a free Kate Olsen class called "Free Mini Course" (myservicedogandme.mykajabi.com/minicoursethescience?cid=acf1db3c-335e-442d-bea1-791ab2bf046a not as good imo as the other two I've done)
  4. And took advantage of the Black Friday deals to get 2 dog beds, 2 plush toys, one puzzle toy, and one bone chew for just over $50.

Now I just need a friggen dog!

Not related to fashion at all, but if you're interested in how dogs think and learn, this is an amazing course taught by one of my favorite scientists, Dr Brian Hare.
