Ever Wonder What Your Dog Thinks of That Toy? It’s Like This.

Study:  Here’s How Your Dog Thinks About That Toy
Good boy! A new study out of Budapest examined how domesticated dogs use their senses to identify toys.  The study involved asking dogs to bring humans certain toys, in both well-lit rooms and dim ones.

Dogs apparently have a “multi-modal mental image” of objects, meaning they don’t just use sight to identify their toys.   They use smell and texture, as well.  It’s multi-sensory, or a combination of senses.

This is how they’re able to bring you a specific toy, even when the room is dark.

Exploring how dogs remember objects could offer more insight about how they think.
