Summary
Chaser, a border collie, has a way with words. She knows over a thousand of them-- more than any other animal of any species except humans. Pilley has opened the door to a new understanding of animal intelligence, one that requires us to reconsider what actually goes on in a dog's mind. Chaser's achievements reveal her use of deductive reasoning and complex problem-solving skills to address novel challenges. And the training methods can be adopted by any dog lover!
Summary
Shares the uplifting story of a Border Collie who recognized an unprecedented number of human words to explore her role in advancing understandings about animal intelligence, recounting how she also demonstrated an ability to use deductive reasoning and imitation
