PEOPLE with more than one dog are being asked to help scientists at the University of Portsmouth’s Dog Cognition Centre find out more about how dogs work with their canine friends.

The centre’s director, Dr Juliane Kaminski, said: ‘Our next study is looking at co-operation and problem-solving in dogs. We are looking for dog buddies living in the same household.’

The study will require a few training sessions where dogs will learn to tug a rope to receive a reward before they can enter the actual study.
