by Donato completed this course, spending 10 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Making references to studies on apes, human children and a few other species, the course explores some of the cognition capabilities of dog compared to other animals and to us, with an interesting insight on domestication and self domestication. While most the course content was interesting, however, I found quite annoying the continual shoving of the course author's book and site in the videos, especially since a few lecture (and quizzes) were dedicated exclusively to them as well. I also found some of lectures (as the one about dog aggression) fairly superficial, giving me the impression they were added as an afterthought.

I'm not unhappy to have taken this course, but it's not one I would recommend in a particular manner either.

The class was interesting and it helped me to understand dogs better. Dr. Hare did a good job of explaining everything he taught every week. I felt like I understood everything I was learning in his class. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to understand dogs better.

I really enjoyed this course. I would have given it 5 stars if all the dognition exercises had been open to participants.
