Thank you for your interest in the research at the Barnard Dog Cognition Lab!
Our research group is led by Professor Alexandra Horowitz, author of Inside of a Dog, and we study the behavior and cognition of the domestic dog.
We are gathering names of people who would be interested in participating in experimental trials with their dogs. To participate, you must live in the NYC area. Most of our experiments are done in public parks (on the Upper West Side) or in private facilities with room for dogs (Downtown or the Upper West Side). Please only volunteer if you are able to get yourself and your dog to one of those locations easily. Some research is done in owners' homes. Please identify which option(s) might work for you.
If you don't hear from us right away, we are not conducting any trials at the moment. Be assured that we have your information and will contact you when a slot is available. We appreciate your involvement and interest!
