Abstract

Research on the responses of dogs to human cues started only relatively recently, with the publication in 1998 of a study in which dogs were tested for their responsiveness to a human pointing at one of two containers. This chapter concentrates on one relatively simple form of behavioral interaction between human and dog: the objectchoice task in which a human points and the dog follows that point to uncover a desirable consequence-usually food. This has proven to be a useful paradigm in which to explore the capacities of dogs, and the origins of those abilities in ontogeny and phylogeny.
