Use of experimenter-given cues in dogs
TLDR
It is suggested that the phenomenon of dogs responding to cues given by humans is better analysed as a case of interspecific communication than in terms of discrimination learning.
Attachment behavior in dogs (Canis familiaris): a new application of Ainsworth's (1969) Strange Situation Test.
TLDR
Although there was considerable variability in dogs' attachment behavior to humans, the authors did not find any effect of gender, age, living conditions, or breed on most of the behavioral variables.
Intentional behaviour in dog-human communication: an experimental analysis of “showing” behaviour in the dog
Abstract Despite earlier scepticism there is now evidence for simple forms of intentional and functionally referential communication in many animal species. Here we investigate whether dogs engage in
Human listeners are able to classify dog (Canis familiaris) barks recorded in different situations.
TLDR
Humans' ability to recognize meaning in played-back dog barks suggests that barks could serve as an effective means of communication between dog and human.
Comprehension of human communicative signs in pet dogs (Canis familiaris).
TLDR
The hypothesis is that dogs spend more time in close contact with humans than apes do, and as a result dogs are probably more experienced in the recognition of human gestures.
A comparative study of the use of visual communicative signals in interactions between dogs (Canis familiaris) and humans and cats (Felis catus) and humans.
TLDR
The results suggest that individual familiarization with pointing gestures ensures high-level performance in the presence of such gestures; however, species-specific differences could cause differences in signaling toward the human.
Are readers of our face readers of our minds? Dogs (Canis familiaris) show situation-dependent recognition of human’s attention
TLDR
It is concluded that dogs are able to rely on the same set of human facial cues for detection of attention, which form the behavioral basis of understanding attention in humans.
