Chaser On The Today show

Remember the post we wrote last month on Chaser, that super-smart Border Collie that knows 1,022 nouns? Don't fret if you missed it, check it out now: boccibeefs.blogspot.com/2011/01/chaser-border-collie-1022-proper-nouns.html

Anyway, Chaser, his owner, and the scientist who's trying to make sense of this remarkable dog's learning skills were on the Today show just a few days ago. We thought it was worthy of a few minutes of your time to watch-as Matt Lauer said, "This isn't dog tricks, this is science."

What do you think: "tricks" or real learning? We'd love to hear your opinions!

That is one super smart dog! It sure looks like Chaser is listening and reasoning.

I think I once heard that most dogs know at least 200 words. This dog is a super achiever!!

I think it's learning. You can see her looking for the item and sorting in her mind between all the toys. I think, as with people, it's the training that she has received. She has learned through repetition. Hmm..I wonder how many words I could teach Kirby! That is so awesome!
