The Dognition Assessment provides a window into your dog's individual cognitive style — the thinking, learning, and problem-solving strategies that influence much of your dog's behavior. You'll play science-based games that assess 5 core dimensions of your dog's cognition — empathy, communication, cunning, memory, and reasoning. Then, in your dog‘s Dognition Profile Report, you'll gain a richer understanding of your dog through analysis and insight from the world's top canine experts.

See How it works

Because your dog is family

We understand. That's why Dr. Brian Hare, along with the world's leading canine scientists and trainers, created the Dognition Assessment: interactive games and expert analyses that give you an unprecedented perspective on how your dog sees the world. By understanding your dog's mind, you'll build a deeper connection with the personality behind the bright eyes that greet you every day.
