I find cognitive processes fascinating. No place can we see or own rudimentary steps towards making sense of this world than in animals. This is also the place we can mock how incessantly long it takes for things to stick without causing any lasting damage to the sllllooowwww learner’s psyche.
Here’s my boy Fergus trying to figure out a treat puzzle:
In video 1, we send our Golden Retriever into the fray without a plan.
In video 2, I show Fergus how to work this puzzle if he had thumbs.
In video 3 , Fergus makes the lesson his own.
Amazing how the impossible becomes easy with a little help and patience.
