This one?

I just was watching this and Bev came up behind me and kept clapping for the dog with the clicker went off LOL. I didnt explain anything to her and we have never used a clicker with our dogs so it really is THAT easy to understand the concept.

But from a cognitive POV thatís what was so cool! In order to have a tallest, you have to have a point of comparison. That the dog recognized, even for a second, that the point of comparison was missing is pretty amazing, and gives dogs far more credit for cognitive abilities than we previously thought.

I think we are at the cusp of making some pretty cool discoveries about what dogs (and other animals) are capable of. Up until now it has been kind of like judging a fish on his ability to climb a tree. But now that we have a more universal way to communicate, I bet weíre just going to continue to see more and more amazing stuff.

YES, thank you! I love this video for all of the reasons you've already stated in this thread. It may not seem like the dog is doing a whole lot to some people at first, but when you actually stop and realize what it is that's actually going on...

This... you know some shockjock somewhere is thinking they could get their dog to do that with low level stim and simply let off when the dog gets near the correct column.
But thatís not the point. The point is that the dog is doing all the cognitive work. The dog is figuring out what is tallest, not the human directing the dog.
Its hard for me to articulate, but that switch - from human directing, to the dog figuring it out on his own, from an obedient dog to a thinking dog, THAT switch, is what gets me so excited about this type of training. So cool

I really like the end. And her comment about it. "If I were her, I probably would have done different, but I would have been wrong." There IS no tallest. If my dog ever got an answer right that I got wrong, I'd be so thrilled.
