but his owner used Philip’s skill to teach him how to do new useful behaviors such as fetching objects or putting things away Despite Philip’s abilities "nobody really cared or saw that it could be useful for investigating how dogs learn or see their world" says dám Miklósi a behavioral ethologist at Etvs Loránd University in Budapest who was part of Topál’s team And in 2009 another team concluded that dogs were only able to correctly imitate if there was no more than a 5-second delay between watching the action and repeating it With such a short retention span dogs’ vaunted imitation skills seemed useless But Miklósi didn’t fully accept this; he thought that the experiment needed to be adjusted by teaching the dogs more explicitly There are two basic commands the dogs must learn: "Do as I do" which means they need to pay attention to what is being demonstrated The second command "Do it" requires the dog to imitate what they’ve seen What was missing was also a command that the dog needed to wait before performing the imitation An Italian dog trainer and graduate student at Etvs Loránd Claudia Fugazza agreed and figured out a new method "We wanted to see if dogs can do ‘deferred imitation’ " Fugazza explains "So they needed to learn that they also had to wait" Deferred imitation is considered a sophisticated cognitive skill because it requires an individual to recall an action after a delay of 1 minute or more—something that is possible only if the individual has retained a mental representation of the action Fugazza and Miklósi worked with eight adult pet dogs that ranged in age from 2 to 10 years old and their owners The canines were all females of various breeds—border collies a Yorkshire terrier a Shetland sheepdog a Czechoslovakian wolfdog and one mixed breed The owners trained their dogs using the "Do as I do" method For instance an owner would tell her dog to "Stay" and then command "Do as I do" whereupon the owner might walk around a traffic cone or put her head in a bucket placed on the ground or ring a bell suspended from a bar After returning to her dog the owner would wait 5 seconds and then command "Do it" The dog was expected to copy her owner’s behavior To see how long the dogs retained the memory the owners were then asked to add another step to the test After saying "Do it" they walked their pets behind a screen 14 meters away that hid the cone or other experimental objects so that the animals wouldn’t continue to look at them Then they waited for up to 30 seconds before returning to the starting position "We just kept slowly increasing the time between the demonstration and the ‘Do it’ command" Fugazza explains Once the dogs could imitate the behavior twice in a row after waiting for 30 seconds they were ready for the testing phase Each dog was given 19 tests in eight different conditions—including copying a familiar action a novel action and a distracting action All the dogs were shown the same novel action to imitate: Each one watched her owner enter a wooden box This time they were expected to wait behind the screen for one full minute before returning to the starting position and being told "Do it" For the distracting action tests the dogs watched the owner do something they had seen before Again they were led behind the screen but this time commanded to lie down or fetch a ball The waiting periods during these sessions lasted from 30 seconds to 4 minutes The dogs endured their longest breaks after watching a familiar action—with times varying from 24 seconds to 10 minutes "They can wait even longer" Fugazza says "but we really don’t expect the owners to stay behind the screen for an hour" The dogs also showed their smarts by repeating the action that they’d witnessed even when a person other than the demonstrator and who did not know which action the dog was expected to copy gave the "Do it" command All the dogs completed 18 trials scoring almost perfect marks; six dogs made one error each one dog made two and another made six mistakes the team reports this month in Animal Cognition "The statistical results are very robust" Fugazza says "and they show the dogs can do deferred imitation" This suggests she adds that dogs have declarative memory—long-term memory about facts and events that can be consciously recalled Until now only humans have been shown to have this type of memory "It is a very nice demonstration of deferred imitation in dogs" says Frans de Waal a primatologist at Emory University in Atlanta who suggests that now that this ability has been found in our canid pals it’s likely to be found in many other animals Still the discovery will likely be a surprise to even the most experienced dog trainers says Brian Hare a comparative psychologist at Duke University in Durham North Carolina "I doubt that they would have predicted that dogs can learn new actions by observing what a human does remembering the actions and then repeating those actions after translating them to their own doggy body plan" And while de Waal agrees with the researchers that the dogs must be using declarative memory to do this type of imitation Hare and others are less certain "That’s the weakest part of the study" says Jonathon Crystal a comparative psychologist at Indiana University Bloomington "But the evidence for delayed imitation is solid and impressive" Fugazza and Miklósi hope that trainers especially those teaching guide and other working dogs take advantage of their willingness to learn by watching our actions "They do it so naturally because dogs are predisposed to learn socially from us" Miklósi says He and Fugazza advise dog-owners and trainers to think of useful actions for dogs to copy such as fetching the mail from the mailbox carrying a tool to the garden or better yet on these hot summer days grabbing a beer for Dad from the ‘fridgeWritten by Raakhi Jagga | Ludhiana | Published: June 13 2009 4:51 am Related News After 25 shops were recently gutted in the Talaab Bazaar market firethe Municipal Corporation (MC) seems to have woken up to the reality of the ill-equipped fire department At a meeting with the staff of the fire department on FridaySenior Deputy Mayor Parveen Bansal said?compared to people with average mental activity, Also Read:? our social networks get larger.
