Hans Pastusz Rohen, an animal behaviorist, award-winning animal behaviorist, has created the Talking Dog video. He is a specialist in understanding dog psychology and how canines make use of complex math to solve problems. His research has earned him numerous awards, including 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 shows us a strange peculiarity: our dogs appear to be able comprehend the meaning behind words even when they’ve never heard them before. He states that his discovery of the phenomenon is due in large part to the fact that dogs make use of the same type of brain processing that humans do when processing verbal information. He found that dogs make use of an illusion known as the stumpfog effect, which is essentially a fancy term for what is called the “illusory auditory system.” This is what allows a normal person to understand speech even if they’ve 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 specific sound-ixtures, such as clicks and snaps in sentences, to visual images is the main reason. Dogs use the same neural connections as humans to interpret the visual information they receive.
Von Osten recorded a variety of dog sounds and asked owners to watch a video of the same things being spoken by a person to test this. The owners were asked to rate how accurately they understood the meaning of the video. The results were interesting The more effort the dog owner put into hearing the sound the more accurate their assessment of the speaker’s message was. It seems that dogs process sound and video in the same way. It is interesting to note that the dogs also were able to remember the names of the speakers they heard the sound from!
Von Osten also wrote books on talking dogs. One book, called What Every Dog Owner Should be aware of, describes the talking dog experiment and includes descriptions of the theories behind it. In that book the theory is explained and the amount of buttons or slips that are used are explained. While the concept isn’t entirely new, it is still a mystery to dog owners. Many of the details are also new to me. I have discovered that other researchers have replicated the same results, but I am not an expert in this area and cannot confirm the validity of the research.
In conclusion, although the book is not an attempt to replicate the scientific research behind the Talking Dog phenomenon, I find it to be an interesting read and believe it is worth your time. I don’t claim to be a scientist, and can’t confirm the truthfulness of any claims made in this book. I am, however, an avid fan of the idea and am sure that other dog lovers will view this as a fantastic method to learn about the psychology of their dog and much as the clever Hans canaries who wag throughout an interview, my dog can communicate with anyone, at any time, by saying whatever comes to his mind. It’s amazing and I’m looking forward to more books from this author, perhaps in the vein of his “Dog Whisperer” series.
