The Intelligence of Dogs

Posted by with 4 comments
How smart are dogs?!

I came across this interesting video through another blog. It discusses research on dogs trained to assist autistic children. Being a special ed. teacher, the two topics caught my attention.
The video demonstrates how in tune dogs are to our every move-- body language, even more so our eyes! (Just a side note: I couldn't help to laugh-- I use my eye movements to teach children with autism to pay attention to other forms of communication too. It's amazing how parallel some things are in teaching.)

Anyways.. this explains why strange things happen while my eyes are closed on the couch.
Enjoy, d & t
