Dognition was developed by Chief Science Officer Dr. Brian Hare and CEO/President Kip Frey, Dognition is supported by a world-class team of Scientific Advisory Board Members from leading international research institutions including Harvard and Yale.  Dognition is devoted to enriching the understanding of dogs and our relationships with them through cognitive science.

 The service is all about your dog's cognition – how he or she faces the world and tackles problems. By playing fun, science-based games and completing an online personality questionnaire, you gain access to your dog’s Dognition Profile – a personalized assessment of what makes your dog unique. What’s more, all of the data aggregated by Dognition will help scientists like Dr. Hare make exciting new breakthroughs in dog cognition, contributing to the greater good of all dogs.

Dr. Hare and Vanessa Woods have published a book  The Genius of Dogs: How Dogs are Smarter than You Think. This book gives new insights on dog evolution and intelligence.
