So today,I researched about how do dogs decide who is their master? Obviously most dogs love people but why do they listen, and show affection more to one person rather then everyone, so why? Their "master' is usually the person the dog is always happiest to see and listens to the most. Dogs see their master as the person who cares for them (Eg: Talking them for walks, feeding them, etc), plays with them, and spends a lot of time with them. It may be more difficult for the dog the choose a...Read More...

Hey everyone, this will be my final round of research for this year. Since this is my last round of research for this topic, and I won't be continuing on with this topic after, I've decided for this research round to analyse myths I found about resilience. Resilience is built in only one way . Resilience can be built in many different ways. People who may not be exactly the same can be just as resilient as each other. Here are some ways to grow resilience: Flexible and accurate thinking,...Read More...

Hey everyone, this week I'll be continuing on with my question "Why are some people more resilient than other?" and I'll be looking into if genes are a factor in resilience. Glucocorticoid Receptor The glucocorticoid receptor is a stress hormone that helps different physiological processes to maintain homeostasis( the ability or tendency to maintain internal stability) these hormones are controlled by the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA)(2,3,4) However this hormone is found in everyone...Read More...

Hey everyone! My question is "Why are some people more resilient than others?" This round of research, I''ll look at why are some people just naturally more resilient. People who are more resilient are capable of adapting to misfortune.. Resilient people can manage the difficulty of going through trauma. Obviously no one is going to be okay if something traumatic happens but just being upset and not trying to help yourself isn't the solution. (1,4) These are different levels of emotional...Read More...

Hi everyone! Last cycle my topic was resiliency and my question was "Why are some people more resilient than others?" I've decided to continue on with this topic but head in with a different direction. Last cycle, I looked at what resiliency is and how it is obtained , physical and emotional abuse, and a variety of phobias and panic disorders. So some of the things I want to look into this cycle is resilience in grief/loss and why it takes some people more time to get over it, how resiliency...Read More...

Last week I looked into physical abuse and a little sexual abuse. Although there is so much I could be researching about my question "Why are some people more resilient then others?", I couldn't really decide about what to look into. After some thinking, this week I'll be looking into phobias and mental disorders that people may receive after physical and emotional abuse. Phobias- An intense fear of something whether it being a person, place,etc. Eg: A fear of heights . Panic disorders-...Read More...

This week, I'll be continuing on with my topic "Why are some people more resilient then others?" and I'll be looking into physical abuse and the impact. What is physical abuse? Physical abuse is physical force or violence towards someone causing injuries such as bruises, broken bones,etc. It could also be if someone is touching you in any way that makes you uncomfortable. (1,2,3,4) Types of physical abuse: Scratching, punching, biting, strangling or kicking. Throwing an object at you Pulling...Read More...

Hey there! My subject is why are some people more resilient than others. This week Im looking into how people become resilient over a breakup, loss,etc and resilience in relationships. Here is something I found about how to build your resilience in a break up: Try and maintain separation Basically this means to try and not see the person you're having issues with . Physically, on social media or any contact at all. Though, if you think it would be right, you can try and become friends with...Read More...

So my topic is about resiliency. This week, I'll be looking into resiliency itself. Basically an introduction to resiliency. This is my first round of research for this cycle and a completely new topic, so I thought it would only be ideal to get to know about resiliency itself. Resiliency is the ability to bounce back after something traumatic happens in your life, for an example, the loss of someone important in your life or a break up. It's basically your ability to move on.(1,2) Here are...Read More...

So my question is "Why are some people more resilient then others?" This is my project plan for this cycle with a completely new question, so I basically don't have any info or idea about why this could be. So here is what I plan on looking into: First, I plan on looking into resiliency itself. I'll be looking into why do people become resilient in this first place, and why some aren't. I'll also be looking at types of resiliency. So my first round of research will be an introduction to...Read More...

Hey everyone! This is my fifth round of research for this cycle. Last week I enjoyed looking a tiny bit into senior dogs and wished to learn more , so this week I am going to do an entire topic on senior dogs. If you didn’t read my post last week, here is some information I had already found on senior dogs if you are interested. Separation anxiety- This is very common in senior dogs. The dog would get nervous when their owner leaves. This may cause barking, being destructive,urinate or...Read More...

Hey everyone! This is my 4th research round of research and this week , I was not exactly sure what I would look into. After some thinking I thought about how when your younger and you are not very wise and do things without thinking and as you get older that changes. You make wiser decisions and a smarter person in general. So that led me to what I think I should look into next. So now I am wondering if dogs mature as they get older and the different stages of a dog. First lets identify the...Read More...

Hello everyone, this week is my 3rd round for my inquiry how do dogs learn? Last week I looked into blind dogs and I was planning on deaf dogs last week but I decided since they are both two pretty big things to look into that I would just do a separate round of research for each. Anyways this is my research into deaf dogs. Many people think that deaf dogs can be very aggressive, they have a high chance of being run over by a car, and that they untrainable. This is not true at all. A deaf...Read More...

Hey there! This week I am looking into blind dogs. I honestly find this super interesting because there is so much treatment for humans who have these disabilities but you never hear about what sort of treatment animals in general receive. So here's what I found: This first section are beliefs about blind dogs and I found it very interesting; You can't adopt blind dogs : No! Of course you can adopt blind dogs! Dogs are dogs (1) It is hard to care for blind dogs: Actually this isn't true at...Read More...

So it has been quite a while since I have posted a research round. Mainly because we were doing metamorphosis,broaden your thinking, and we also had a small break from posting for a couple weeks. So basically if you haven't read my project plan, I am continuing with the same idea for the next cycle but just slightly altering my question so now I am looking into 'How do dogs learn?' This week I am looking into about how dogs learn to do certain professions. For a police dog: The dog has to...Read More...

My inquiry question: How do dogs learn? So in the last cycle my question was "How do dogs interpret our language?" And for the next cycle we had the choice of starting something new or continuing our current question. I still want to look into more about how dogs think, but I think I got enough information about how they understand our language. So I wanted to stick to the same idea but a bit different. So I chose this question. So this is what I will be planning to look into: - How do dogs...Read More...

So my inquiry question is "How do dogs interpret our language?' After I had chosen this subject, I started doubting myself honestly. I thought this was going to be super easy topic and I would find an answer within my first research round. But that did not turn out to be the case. It's almost time for my fourth round of research and I haven't even finished covering everything I want to look into. And honestly, it took me a while to understand that is there is really no answer to an inquiry...Read More...

Hello, so today I have chosen Dale William Ngatia 's question " What are the effects of gend er inequality? " and my question " How do dogs interpret our language" . It may seem impossible to find a connection between these two, but I think I have found a connection. So I thought of the idea if dogs prefer a certain gender over another.Do they prefer their male owner or female owner more? So I looked into this some more and here is what I have found. It really depends on the dog. If it is a...Read More...

So the first thing I am researching is about the dog brain. Here is what I found on this topic: Dogs do think logically. They do have a left and right side of the brain .They can tell when we are showing them something if we just point at it. They can tell if one food bowl has more then another.They can also recognize voices. And they can tell if they should trust someone or not. A dog's brain has pretty much the same brain structure as us. They have the same basic functions as us. In fact,...Read More...

Hello everyone! This week I am researching how dogs become trained. How do they know that 'sit' means sit? How do they learn sign languages?How do they learn tricks and commands? So here is what I found: If your dog does a certain action(eg: sit) and you praise them or give them a treat immediately after, it is likely that this action will happen more in the future. We can also show dogs what good behavior is. For an example, if your dog jumps up on you, or does something would not like it...Read More...

So for my inquiry question, I chose how do dogs interpret things? This is how I am planning on doing things(My project plan) So first, I plan on researching about the dog brain so I can get to understand a little bit about how they think . Some questions that I am considering looking into is how do dogs react to certain behaviors, how does their brain grow overtime? For an example is their thinking the same from when they were a puppy and an adult? After I get to know about that I plan to...Read More...
