dog learning

thanks vintageimages.org (PD)
So I've just found The Open University's Hound Hub, a generous handful of online presentations on our oldest friends. Here's a 10-minute piece on dogs and the poor in Renaissance-era drama.  Or I can learn what cynicism and dogs have in common.  Elsewhere the OU has an overview of their three-episode series on The Wonder of Dogs.
Let's not forget DogChannel.com's Dog College where you can do a short course with a quiz in many doggy subjects, from Dog Communication 101 to Canine Culture 401.
Would you like to try a class with a bit more commitment and rigor?  MIT Open Courseware has People and Other Animals, a historical survey of human/animal interactions.
All these courses are free, and a fun way to stretch your mind toward different aspects of dog life!
