Capilano Universe — The Inner Lives of Dogs: Demystifying Canine Thought;

Have you ever wondered what it is like to be a dog? Recent research demonstrates that our pawfect companions have more in common with us than we previously realized, but we cannot assume that dogs understand and experience the world the same way we do.

Do they love us like we love them? Can they understand when we talk to them? How do they communicate with us and each other? Do they expect us to be the leaders of their pack? What is it like to have super sniffing powers? We will explore these questions and more!
