DOG METACOGNITION EXPERIMENTS
Pekingese Dog - Tabitha 12/2021
My dog, Tabitha, has learned to go in the big crate when I ring a low tone to get food and to go in the small crate when I ring a high tone to get the same amount of food. She has also learned that if she goes around the crates she will only get a smaller amount of food. She has also been trained to know that if she goes in the small crate when I ring the low tone, she does not get any food, and that if she goes in the large crate when I ring a high tone, she does not get any food. As the tone I ring is increasingly intermediate between low and high tone, Tabitha increasingly goes around the crates to get the smaller amount of food.
Note: Tabitha always went to the correct crate for difficulty levels 0 and 1.
