What's The POINT

an interesting article on dogs ability to follow a pointing gesture. Amazing how dogs have learned to have a head start in learning when it comes to interactions with humans.
Pamela Reid, CAAB
"what we see in dogs is an adaptive specialization of learning. “In essence, they come with a built-in head start to learn the significance of people’s gestures, in much the same way that white-crowned sparrows acquire their species-typical song and ducklings imprint on their own kind.”

here's the article What?s the Point? | The Bark 4 pages
