You’ll learn some fascinating facts about dogs and their language through this video. This video will help your dog learn speaking. They will pay attention to what you say!
Hans Pastusz Rohen, an animal behaviorist, award-winning animal behaviorist, developed the Talking Dog video. He is an expert in understanding the psychology of dogs and how they apply complex math to solve problems. His discoveries have earned him many awards like the 1999 Breakthrough Award by the American Psychological Association (London, England) and the Royal Society of Medicine (London, England).
The book by Von Osten The Talking Dog reveals a bizarre anomaly where dogs can comprehend the meaning of words even in the absence of hearing them before. He states that his discovery of the talking dog phenomenon is due in large part to the fact that dogs are able to use the same sort of processing that humans use when processing verbal information. He discovered that dogs make use of an illusion known as the stumpfog effect, which is basically a fancy name for what is called the “illusory auditory system.” This is what allows an average person to understand speech even if they’ve never heard it before.
In The Talking Dog, von osten states that dogs use the same process that humans use to process the meaning behind spoken words. The ability of dogs to connect certain sounds, like snaps and clicks in sentences, to a visual image is the most important thing. Dogs use the same connections as humans to interpret the visual information they receive.
Von Osten recorded a range of dog sounds and asked dog owners to view a video of the same sounds being spoken by a person in order to test this. The video was then viewed by the dog owners who were asked to rate how accurate they understood the meaning. The results were fascinating The more effort the dog’s owner put into hearing the sound the more accurate their assessment of the speaker’s message was. It appears that dogs process sound and video in a similar way. The dogs were also able to remember the names of the speakers they heard.
Von Osten also wrote books on talking dogs. One of them, called What Every Dog Owner Needs to Know, contains the talk-dog experiment and includes descriptions of what the theory means. In that book the theory is explained, and the number of slips or buttons that are that are used are explained. The idea is not completely new, but it is new to dog owners, and a lot of the details are unfamiliar to me, too. I have discovered that other researchers have replicated the same results, but I am not an expert in this field and cannot vouch for its reliability.
In conclusion, while the book isn’t an attempt to replicate the scientific research behind the Talking Dog phenomenon, I consider it an interesting read and believe it is worth your consideration. I am not a scientist, therefore I am unable to verify the truthfulness of any claims in the book. I am however an avid fan of the idea and am sure that other dog lovers will see this as a great method to learn about the psychology of their pet. Just as smart Hans canaries who wag during an interview, my dog is able to talk to anyone, anytime, saying whatever comes to his mind. It’s amazing and I’m looking forward future books by this author maybe in the style of his “Dog Whisperer” series.
