"My Project is to see if dogs can distinguish similar sounding words. I will train her with recorded audio on buttons. She will push the button she thinks is right, If it is, she gets a treat. I will record the data and make it into a presentation. I chose this project because dogs can understand human words, but what if they mix two words up? My project is important because human-dog communication is really useful but dogs can mix up words. My data proved me wrong, saying dogs can understand similar sounding words but I think my dog just got lucky. (keywords: Dog Talk, speech, recognize, similar words)"

One thought on “Dog Talk

  1. Good observations and thoughts on improving the experiment! It’s hard to figure out how to keep an animal’s attention.
