He will test the six smartest dogs in the world on their ability to learn the names of new objects, seen through word of mouth and social media.
Some dogs, such as Border Collision, became famous for their scientific studies that demonstrated their ability to memorize words. A member of that race, Chaser, who died recently, Learned more than 1,000 nouns.
The driving force behind the challenge is Claudia Fugaza, a canine behavior researcher who is part of the Family Dog project at Etowos Laurent University in Budapest. And the sponsor is, of course, Puri.
Dr Fugaza acknowledged that there is a way to find the “smartest dog in the world” for the title of the competition and the promotion of the event.

Dr. Fugaza was interested in this capability after starting the tests Whiskey, Border Collie of Norway, Who has now learned more than 100 names of toys without any special training. Whiskey will be part of the challenge as there will be dogs from Spain, Brazil, Hungary, Florida and the Netherlands. ड all. Fugaza says other races are capable of similar achievements.
However, most dogs cannot complete such tasks even with extensive training, and her scientific interest is in studying more dogs in an attempt to understand the nature of this ability. Even in humans, he said, genius is poorly understood, and its origins are controversial, but even in animals, not all of them are recognized.
“We do not know the origin of this extraordinary operation. And we think dogs are a very good model to study this, ”he said.
