Puggle Preston Goes to Harvard

Right after Preston moved to Cambridge, Puggle Penny told Preston about the Canine Cognition Lab at Harvard University. It is great to know that there are researchers like Dr. Marc Hauser, who is interested in understanding what dogs are thinking ?

Mommy signed Preston up to help with their research. His first session started this week. Preston can not share the details about the research (since it hasn’t been published) but he encourages all the doggies around Boston area to participate. He enjoyed every minute of it and came home with a full stomach!
Preston made Mommy proud for being the first dog tested that could read the owner’s (mommy’s) facial expression. After the study, he was rewarded with a certificate.

    You have done many adventures in a short time that you are in Boston. I won’t be surprised if you are going to be “Preston the Star” too 🙂 Mommy said she can’t wait to read about the study. Was that puggle in the video? Thanks for keeping us posted with your activities.
