What is Dog Cognition? Dog Cognition is the study of how your dog thinks and understands the world. The latest research in this area can teach pet parents how to communicate with their dog, understand their needs and provide a safe, healthy and happy life. This Dog Cognition workshop will be led by Petminded's Resident Dog Scientist.

We will be playing a cognition game with our dogs during this event. If you would like to participate please have handy:

  • Your Dog

  • KONG or wobbly toy

  • Treats to stuff the toy with

  • Pen and paper

  • Timer

Who is Elizabeth? Elizabeth (pictured above) is a four year old chihuahua rescued by Barks Of Love rescue after she was hit by car and lost all four of her puppies. She currently requires extensive medical care. Your donation to Barks of Love will directly support her care.

What is Barks Of Love? Barks of Love is a 501(C)(3) Non Profit based in Orange County California. They are a resource for the welfare of abandoned and abused animals in Orange County, CA. All dogs are kept in private foster homes where they receive the medical care and affection they require until a "forever home" is found that is deemed suitable by Barks of Love. The adoption process consists of screening applicants, dog "meet and greets", and a home check. At least 75% of the organization's time and effort is spent on rescue and rehabilitation.
