PetScoop: GPS Backpack Remotely Controls Dogs

gpsbackpack.jpg

Researchers at Auburn University's Canine Detection Research Institute have created an external, real-time navigation system to guide detection dogs remotely. This new "backpack" is equipped with GPS, sensors, a processor and a radio modem, and directs the dog with vibration and tone. The system should enable these specially trained 'super dogs' to take on risky tasks such as security, combat operations, and support for the disabled.

Amazon Hot New Pet Book Release -- Careers with Dogs: The Comprehensive Guide to Finding Your Dream Job

careerswithdogs.jpg

Having walked this planet for many, many moons, one old saw that we really stand by is Do what you love. Yes, the days are long, but those years really are short.

For those who love dogs (and who doesn't??), many potential careers await other than the veterinarian, a laudable career but an expensive and time-consuming process. But what are the other opportunities?

Careers with Dogs: The Comprehensive Guide to Finding Your Dream Job by Kim Campbell Thornton, former president of the Cat Writers Association, covers every conceivable job from veterinary technician and medical specialist to dog trainer and professional handler.

The book is chock full of information on individual occupations--comprehensive "day-in-the-life" narratives of a professional on that job, the education and training required, salary and job forecast information. The author also compiled an up-to-date listing of resources and career sites. It's a terrific resource for recent high school and college graduates as well as adults seeking a new profession and personal fulfillment.

Super Smart -- Chaser the Border Collie Knows Over a Thousand Words

chaser.jpg

Many dog lovers wonder whether dogs actually understand our words or simply the body language and tone of voice that accompanies them.

John W. Pilley, a psychologist who lives in Spartanburg, SC decided to put his dog's language skills to the test. He has taught his border collie Chaser 1,022 words, the largest vocabulary of any known dog. Dr Piley describes his experiments with Chaser in the current issue of the journal Behavioural Processes (see abstract after the jump).

The New York Times article on Chaser points out that border collies are bred for their ability to pay close attention to the shepherd. "Watch a collie work with a sheepherder [sic] and you will come away amazed how small a gesture the person can do to communicate with his dog," said Alexandra Horowitz, a dog behavior expert at Barnard College and author of Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know.

Chaser's words skills may have some bearing on how children acquire language, although that is a matter for scientific debate. In any event, Dr. Pilley's goal is to develop methods that will help increase communication between people and dogs. Chaser is scheduled to star in a PBS Nova episode on animal intelligence airing February 9.
