Dog research at the Max Planck Institute is strictly observational. There is no invasive research of any kind. We give the dogs various tasks to solve and observe how they interact with their environment, other dogs or a human. There is always a reward, usually a treat or a toy.
At the moment there is no dog research at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology. For more information, please refer to Susanne Mauritz (0341/3550483 or mauritzeva.mpgde).
