Suddenly how smart your dog is seems to matter — an aspiration that has also not gone unnoticed by the commercial pet industry. Walk into any pet supply chain, such as the aptly named PetSmart, and take in the toys, gadgets and foods advertised as optimizing a dog’s intelligence. Or just do an online search for “brain games to play with your dog.”
"To Rate Dogs’ Smarts, Humans Learn New Tricks" is from the January 07, 2017 U.S. section of The New York Times. It was written by Jan Hoffman and narrated by Paul Ryden.
