The French saying, “The Hour Between Dog and Wolf,” refers to the hours of dusk when it is hard to differentiate a wolf from a dog. In this seminar we will explore this grey area between two closely related but often behaviorally and cognitively quite different species. We are three university professors and friends who have been studying dog and wolf behavior for over fifteen years – including repeated visits to Wolf Park. We will start by reviewing the latest findings from archeology and archaeogenetics on the origins of dogs, before focusing on the nature of the dog-human relationship and how dogs differ from their wolf ancestors in the formation of affectionate bonds. A strong focus in our presentations will be on helping seminarians distinguish between strong canine cognition research and nonsense non-science. If the wolves are willing, we will also demonstrate how some of our studies are carried out. We are planning on a fun weekend of teaching, learning, research and wolf howls!
