Abstract submission deadline: July 15, 2017

Research on canine cognition has exploded over the past two decades. Dogs are an appealing species to study for biological, behavioral, and evolutionary reasons. The rise of the dogs has seen research questions spanning a broad range of areas including social cognition, problem solving, cognitive development, perception, and cognitive neuroscience. Often research on canine cognition has been conducted with pet dogs but working and service dogs have made important contributions too. The special issue will highlight the diversity of canine research.
The special issue welcomes manuscripts on original research or a review of a topic related to canine cognition. All submitted manuscripts will be peer reviewed using the same standards for regular submission to Learning & Behavior. To be considered for the special issue please send a title, a 250-500 word abstract for the proposed manuscript, and list of authors to Jeffrey S. Katz and Ludwig Huber by July 15, 2017.
The deadline for manuscript submission, after a successful proposal, is February 15, 2018. The submitting author should select the “Canine Special Issue” at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/lb.
