Social learning and social problem solving

Social learning and social problem solving

(p.280) Chapter 13 Social learning and social problem solving
Dog Behaviour, Evolution, and Cognition

Ádám Miklósi

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines social learning and social problem solving in dogs. It discusses the functional considerations of social learning; social attention; behavioural conformity and synchronisation; social anticipation; the role of teaching in social learning; and problem-solving using public information. Evidence suggests that dogs are able to learn by observation both from con- and heterospecific demonstrators. This trait could support synchronisation of dog-human interaction, especially in collaborative situations. Further research is needed to incorporate this understanding into the socialisation process of dogs, and using these skills in order to enrich their life.

Keywords:   dog-humam interaction, socialisation process, social relationships, social attention, learning
