What is learning? We all learned in school, and we expect our dogs to learn things – but are these the same procedures? The most basic principles of learning were discovered with dogs by accident by a Russian physiologist in the nineteenth century and there was a time when dogs were among the most popular subjects in psychologists’ experiments. Gradually, however, dogs faded as subjects in the study of learning, even as many modern trainers attempted to integrate scientific learning principles into their work. Few dog trainers or behaviorists today would deny an influence of learning theory on their practices – and yet nowadays almost no learning research is carried out on dogs.
