Hans Pastusz Rohen, an animal behaviorist and award-winning animal behaviorist, has created the Talking Dog video. He is a specialist in understanding canine psychology and how they utilize complex math to solve problems. His research has earned numerous awards like the 1999 Breakthrough Award by the American Psychological Association (London, England) and the Royal Society of Medicine (London, England).
In The Talking Dog, von osten presents us with a bizarre anomaly: our dogs seem to be able comprehend the meaning behind words even when they haven’t heard them before. He explains that his discovery of the talking dog phenomenon is due to the fact that dogs are able to utilize the same kind of brain processing that humans do when processing verbal information. He found that dogs use an illusion known as the stumpfog effect, which is essentially a fancy word for what’s known as the “illusory auditory system.” This is what allows an average person to comprehend speech, even if they’ve never heard it before.
Von osten explains in The Talking Dog that dogs have the same brain-computer system as humans in processing spoken words. Their ability to connect certain sounds, like snaps and clicks within sentences, to visual images is the main reason. In essence, dogs use the same sort of connections that humans do trying to make sense of the visual information they’re receiving.
To test this, von osten recorded a variety of dog sounds. He also asked the owners of dogs to watch a video of the same things being said by an individual. The video was then watched by the dog owners who were asked to rate how well they believed the meaning. The results were fascinating: the more of an effort the dog’s owner put into listening to the sound the better their understanding of the speaker’s message was. Dogs process sound and video similarly. The dogs were also able remember the names of the speakers they heard.
Von Osten has also written books on talking dogs. The book What Every Dog Owner Needs to Know provides information on the experiment with talking dogs as well as explanations of the theory. The theory is explained in detail and the number of buttons and slips employed are described in the book. While the concept isn’t entirely new, it is still a mystery to dog owners. A lot of the details are new to me. I have discovered that other researchers have replicated similar results, however I am not an expert in this field and cannot confirm its validity.
The book isn’t an accurate scientific representation of the Talking Dog phenomenon. However I found it to be an interesting read and highly recommend it. I am not a scientist, and therefore I am unable to verify the truthfulness of any claims in the book. I love the concept and believe it’s a great method for dog owners to understand their dog’s behavior. Similar to smart Hans canaries that engage in conversations, my dog can speak to anyone anytime and say whatever his mind wants to. It’s amazing. I look to reading more books written by the author, perhaps in his “Dog Whisperer” series.
