Re: Research Round #1 : How do dogs interpret our language?

Hi Rhea, This topic is very intriguing because people often wonder how pets react to what we say. I have often wondered why dogs bark at certain people and not at others. I found that these resources were able to give an explanation that may be useful to you. http://moderndogmagazine.com/a...and-not-others/91712 https://sarahwilsondogexpert.com/alarm-barking/ Hope this helps and good luck with your research!

Hello Rhea, Your topic interests me because I love animals and I like how detailed and informative your research is. I do have a thought that could be helpful to answer some of your inquiry question though. In my opinion dogs can't fully understand our language using just their ears. So I thought about how deaf people interrupt what we say and I remembered they use sign language which is like hand gestures for dogs. I think looking into "how dogs use their other senses to listen to their...

Re: How do dogs interpret our language? Research Round #2

"Do dogs have enemies?" I love this question! Attaching a usually human associated term to non-human things always interests me. This can lead to a whole bunch of questions, such as "What are enemies, really?" and "Why is the term enemy attached almost exclusively to humans?" While this is unrelated to your project, I just wanted to show you how inspiring your post was! Good luck, and I'm excited to keep updated with your research.

Hello Hello Rhea- Intriguing post, i read something about cats as well that they can be trained and i believe, with the proper technique and such, animals can be trained because they have some level of intelligence, just different species. Cat's normally people wouldn't think they are trainable felines, but on the contrary.

Hi Rhea, I really like the topic you're researching, as I've always wondered how dogs can understand us. For how dogs are trained, I read a really informative article that I'm sure will help will help out a lot with your next round of research. http://animals.howstuffworks.c...ets/dog-training.htm According to this article, the most popular method to training a dog is called clicker training.

Hi Rhea! Another thing you could add on why dogs show specific interest to their owners/masters is the major factor of trust. A dog feels comfortable with humans after a while, when you've shown them that you care and that you love them and do not mean to harm them . This tells dogs, 'SAFE TO APPROACH!' And they will remember your smell as the person they can go to and lick your fingers. Hope this helps.

Such interesting research Rhea! I'm really excited to read the rest of your research, I wanted to mention I've often noticed my dog and cat twitching and kicking in their sleep so I'd be interested in finding out whether there is existing research on the complexity of dreams they have in comparison to us.

Re: Research Round #5- How do dogs learn?

hello Rhea nice engrossing facts about dogs over there.The most interesting bit it's the part where you mentioned that whenever the owner gets to leave his/her home the dogs tend to become nervous thus making them have an an conducive place for them to stay as they end up barking a lot.Nice research and all the best.

Re: Research Round #5- How do dogs learn?

Hey Rhea! I agree with all of that, especially about taking your dog on regular walks, but what if someone doesn't have enough time to walk their dog every single day? Do you think it makes someone a "bad" dog owner if they don't manage to walk their dog every single day? Here's an article on that subject that I think you will find interesting: http://www.vetstreet.com/dr-ma...alk-my-dog-every-day I'm interested to see what you research next!

Hey Rhea. I love how passionate about your research you are! It makes it pleasing to read I was looking up a bit about your topic and found this website called "The Senior Dogs project". It helps older dogs in shelters get adopted and lists some valid reasons why older dogs make such good pets. I'm not sure if creating awareness in your community is at all a direction you are interested in, but regardless I think you will enjoy looking at their organization. http://www.srdogs.com/ Good luck ...

Hi Rhea, This is some very informative research and I am glad that you are looking into how to better care for senior dogs.

The separation anxiety part was very interesting as I had no previous knowledge on it. I think that informing more dog owners about separation anxiety is an important thing to do and I...

Re: Project Plan #3 - Should Animal Testing Be Allowed?

I love this project! Animal cruelty is something that I am very passionate about, so I'm really looking forwards to seeing your research. There are many companies that do not test on animals, so that also begs the question: is animal testing necessary? And if it is not necessary why do some companies still test on animals. A lot of the time I find that humans are cruel purely for the sake of being cruel. Having said all this, I do have a very biased opinion on this topic, so it would be...

This is a rather ethical question. Even though you're researching this from a scientific perspective, considering a philosophical approach would add an interesting layer to your findings. Would it be more ethical then, to experiment upon humans instead of animals? Or to not experiment at all? What kind of risks would that run. How do people value the pain of creatures outside of our own species? With a more cognitively complex experience, can we assume that the pain humans experience is...

Re: Research Round #1 - How is brain development affected by attachment to caregivers?

Hey Anika Your research is so FASCINATING. I had never imagined that attachment can be so crucial to our psychology or our ability to interact with others. I recommend that you read articles on Nature vs. Nurture because it might help you understand which are innate qualities and which are created through the environment. I can not wait to read more of your research as this is a real life situation regarding child development. Good luck!

I think caregivers have the largest group that affects brain development especially in young children. This is because they spend the largest amount of time with them even at times more than the real mothers of the children do.

As an avid meat eater, i find your topic interesting, however there are certain points in your argument that i must inform of a slight bit more.

Just because one sees a correlation, it does not necessarily mean that that is the cause. Another thing is that vegeterians are often lacking...

Re: Is there a formula to creating a meaningful relationship?: Research Round 1

Hey, Taryn. So i was reading your topic, and I have found some things that seem common, that may add something to your research. Many people (including myself) have found that our friendships are based on insulting humour, and this is neither positive, or uplifting in any way, yet some of my closest friends were found in this way. Maybe you should look into your research and see what effects insult based humour has on relationships early in the relationship, and later on in the relationship.

Re: Is there a formula to creating a meaningful relationship?: Research Round 1

Re: Is there a formula to creating a meaningful relationship?: Research Round 1

This is a really interesting topic, I think it is also very opinionated. For every person they will have their own definition and meaning of what a meaningful relationship is. When you say relationship do you mean romantic relationship, or friendship, or relationship with family? Here is an article I found about how to make a happy meaningful relationship https://www.psychologytoday.co...ingful-relationships Good Luck with your research, I am interested to see where you take it.

Re: Is there a formula to creating a meaningful relationship?: Research Round 1

Hey Taryn! Your topic is a truly interesting one! It also makes me think, could this equation differ from person to person? When you mentioned the common traits of these relationships, I also wondered how different people would react to this equation of common traits. Also because everyone is very different, would your life experiences, likes, dislikes and passions effect this equation? I look forward to your findings and I can’t wait to read the next post!

Hey Juliana! What an interesting topic! I think that it's quite difficult to divide a person's actions into categories as broad as "good" or "evil", because I think that many of the negative decisions that we make are either unconscious, or backed by a motive that we believe to have positive results. I don't know if it's human nature to be "evil" per se, but perhaps it is just our inherent ignorance towards the consequences of our actions that causes us to do "evil" things. Here are some...

Hey, As humans we are still animals ( classified under animalia ). All animals have it hardwired into their brains to keep themselves and those who are close to them alive. So to ask if we are good or evil, is an extremely difficult topic to debate, as we have to ask ourselves if killing is evil. Most people will say yes, but then one has to ask if a predator killing prey is evil. Most people will say no. We say this because we know the difference between good and evil, however we do not...

Re: RESEARCH ROUND 2: What is the environmental impact of different diet plans?

Hey Maiya! Super interesting topic. I was just wondering something that I have always pondered about but never really found an answer to. How is animal cruelty reduced? This hurts to say, but wouldn't they slaughter the animals anyway, for another person to buy? Or does the market slowly go down or shut down when a set number of people stops buying the animals, or in this case, products made by animals as well? Just curious. Anyways, good luck on your research!
