“Researchers in Hungary have spent more than two years searching for dogs who could recognise the names of their different toys, advertising for owners to come forward on social media. Now the canines they have discovered are set to take part in a series of livestreamed experiments, called the Genius Dog Challenge.” (One of my beagles regularly comes when I call him for a treat and then leaves, forgetting to actually take the treat out of my hand. We’ll be sitting this competition out.)
