Episode 30 - Dog intelligence.

  Are you a fan of pedigrees or do you prefer crossbreeds? Opinions on this area can be very heartfelt, and the issue is clouded in myth. Which is more intelligent though, a pure pedigree or a mixed up mutt?

At Aberdeen University in Scotland, Dr David Smith and his students have been investigating this very matter. A variety of dogs were tested and the results make interesting listening.

The research is still on going, and you and your dog can participate where ever you are. If you are in the UK you can join in with research about the effect fish oils can have on a dog's intelligence.
