The Talking Dog is a unique and entertaining method of teaching your dog basic communication skills. It’s a great way for your dog to learn to talk to you as well as to others, in addition to understanding the difference between saying “no” and “OK.” You’ll discover an entire world of vocabulary that goes beyond the basic A-B-C’s that dogs can utilize. You’ll discover fascinating facts about dogs and their languages through this video. This video will help your dog master speaking. They are listening!
The Talking Dog video has been created by an award winning animal behaviorist who holds a Ph.D. named Hans Pastusz-Rohen. He specializes in understanding the dog’s psychology and how our canine friends make use of complex math to solve problems. His discoveries have been recognized with numerous awards, including the 1999 Breakthrough Award from the American Psychological Association and the Royal Society of Medicine, both of which are located in London, England.
In The Talking Dog, von osten is able to show us a fascinating anomaly: our dogs appear to be able to comprehend the meaning of words , even when they haven’t heard them before. He explained that the reason he stumbled upon the talking dog phenomenon was because dogs employ the same methods of processing as humans when processing information verbally. He found that dogs utilize an illusion known as the stumpfog effect, which is essentially a fancy term for what’s known as the “illusory auditory system.” This is essentially what allows your average person to understand speech when they’ve never heard of it before.
In The Talking Dog, von osten clarifies that dogs employ the same process that humans use to interpret the meaning behind spoken words. The key is their ability to connect certain sound-ixtures (like the snaps and clicks in the speech) with a corresponding visual image. Dogs use the same neural connections as humans to interpret visual information they receive.
Von Osten recorded a variety of dog sounds and asked owners to watch a video of the same words being spoken by a person to verify this. The owners were asked to rate how accurately they were able to comprehend the meaning of the video. The results were astonishing The more effort a dog owner made to hear the sound the better they believed the speaker. Dogs process video and sound similarly. The dogs were also able recall the names of the speakers they heard.
In addition to talking dogs, von Osten also has written books on the subject. The book What Every Dog Owner Needs to Know contains information about the talking dog experiment and also explains the theory. In that book the theory is explained, and the number of buttons or slips used are described. The idea is not completely novel, but it is new to dog owners, and a lot of the details are new to me too. Although I have read about other researchers getting the same results, I am unable to confirm the validity of the idea.
In conclusion, even though the book isn’t an attempt to replicate the scientific research behind the Talking Dog phenomenon, I find it to be an fascinating read and believe that it is definitely worth your consideration. I don’t, however, claim to be a scientist, and cannot guarantee the validity of any assertions made in the book. I am, however, extremely enthusiastic about the concept and am sure that other dog lovers will view this as a fantastic way to educate themselves on the psychology of their pet. Much like clever Hans canaries who wag during an interview, my dog can talk to anyone, anytime, saying whatever comes to the mind. It’s truly amazing and I’m looking forward to future books by this author maybe in the style of his “Dog Whisperer” series.
