Inhibitory Control In Dogs

Training enhances this ability

There are many ways to assess cognitive abilities, and one that
has recently been receiving a lot of attention is inhibitory
control. The theory is that if individuals are capable of
inhibitory control (restraining themselves from exhibiting a
response that used to be beneficial but is no longer effective),
that indicates a high level of cognitive functioning.

In a new study, “Training
improves inhibitory control in water rescue dogs
researchers asked whether training improves inhibitory control.
They wanted to know if dogs who are highly trained have better
inhibitory control than dogs without much training.
