Hans Pastusz Rohen, an animal behaviorist and award-winning behaviorist, has created the Talking Dog video. He specializes in understanding the psychology of dogs and how our canine friends utilize complex math to solve problems. His discoveries have won numerous awards including the 1999 Breakthrough Award by the American Psychological Association (London, England) and the Royal Society of Medicine (London, England).
Von Osten’s book The Talking Dog reveals a peculiar phenomenon in which dogs can comprehend the meaning behind words even in the absence of hearing them before. He explained that the reason he came across the phenomenon of the talking dog was that dogs can use the same methods of processing as humans when processing information verbally. He found that dogs utilize an illusion known as the stumpfog, which is a fancy name for what’s called the “illusory hearing system”. This is what allows a person to understand speech even if they have never heard it before.
In The Talking Dog, von osten explains that dogs use the same kind of process that humans use to comprehend the meaning behind spoken words. Their ability to connect certain sounds, like snaps and clicks in the form of a sentence, to a visual image is the key. In essence, dogs make the same kind of connections as people when trying to make meaning of the visual information they’re getting.
To test this out, von osten recorded a number of dog sounds and asked some dog owners to watch a video of the same things being said by an individual. The dog owners were asked to rate how well they understood the meaning of the video. These results were astounding The more effort a dog owner made to listen to the sound the better they judged the speaker. It appears that dogs process video and sound in a similar way. The dogs were also able recall the names of the speakers they heard.
Von Osten also wrote books about talking dogs. One of them, called What Every Dog Owner Must know, explains the talk-dog experiment and includes descriptions of the significance of the theory. In that book the theory is explained and the number of buttons or slips used are described. The idea is not completely new, but it’s new to dog owners, and a lot of the details are new to me too. While I have read about other researchers getting the same results, I am unable to confirm its validity.
The book isn’t a scientific replica of the Talking Dog phenomenon. However I found it to be a fascinating read and highly recommend it. I don’t claim to be a scientist and cannot guarantee the validity of any assertions made in the book. I love the concept and think it is a great method for dog owners to gain insight into their dog’s psychology. Much like smart Hans canaries who engage in conversations My dog can speak to anyone anytime and say whatever his mind wants to. It is truly amazing and I’m looking forward to future books by this author possibly in the style of his “Dog Whisperer” series.
