I am a scientist who studies canine cognition and the human-animal bond. Ask me anything!
I'm Evan MacLean, director of the Arizona Canine Cognition Center at the University of Arizona. I am a comparative psychologist interested in canine intelligence and how cognition evolves. I study how dogs think, communicate and form bonds with humans. I also study assistance dogs, and what it takes for a dog to thrive in these important roles. You may have seen me in season 2, episode 1 of "The World According to Jeff Goldblum" on Disney , where I talked to Jeff about how dogs communicate with humans and what makes their relationship so special.
Proof: Here's my proof!
Update: Thanks for all the fun questions! Sorry I couldn't get to everything, but so happy to hear from so many dog lovers. I hope you all get some quality time with your pups over the holidays. I'll come back and chat more another time. Thanks!!
