Great course with a lot of new information, not just about dogs but even domestication of other species, including humans. The predictability of aggression in humans would be an interesting next topic
I learned valuable information about dogs. I can better understand the thought processes of my own dogs. I really like that the lecture slides were provided after the lectures, so I could review them.

I have learnt some basic knowledge about dog's congnition. It may be more interesting if I have a dog to take part in these experments.

Didn't really learn about Dog emotions until week 7&8 out of 8 weeks, the first couple of weeks were talking about other animals.

The course could have been a little more precise. Video lectures could have been more direct. Would have saved a lot of time.

Subject matter is very interesting, but the instructor saying um and uhh way too much was very distracting and annoying.

Too much info about evolution and apes etc, not enough with dogs. Good teacher, but not as helpful as I'd hoped.
By Gretchen G•
Interesting insights into human interactions with dogs. I just could not finish the entire class.
Compared to the other courses, this one is kind of boring, but learned some origination of dogs :)

Too many gestures, movements and ahhhs, slides available but not downloadable (what's the point?).

The instructor advertised his book and website so much that it took away from the content.

too detailed, too much information to process but the lecturer was actually pretty fun.

En general está ok! pero siento que muchas clases son bastante repetitivas.

Wasn't my favorite but I enjoyed some of it.

I think it is a bit complicated to those who have no basic knowledge in this discipline some professional terms are hard to understand even with definition because words are to difficult and rarely seen in daily life and the mode of conducting the lecture I would say is quite boring and passive as the lecturer is just standing still to read script and show powerpoints it is not good to detonate knowledge and for us to really get deep to it I would recommend more experiment video or illustration to make this funnier and rise our intention to learn dogs should be a topic contains loads of fun and is not supposed to be this informatively boring

videos are terribly boring.... lectures are very uneven in information and interest. Reading material is worthless. The idea of the course is good, but this one needs a lot more work for me to spend my valuable time on it.
This is basically an as for the instructor's book and a website called dognition. And it's a bad ad...

I find this course redundant and useless. You can simply learn how to train your dog without having to take a course. You simply feed and training a dog not to bark, obey commands and obey verbal commands with some authority as dogs have a pack mentality. You do not need a course to learn this!

He advertised his book and game A LOT. Either give it to your students, require it for the class, or suggest/plug it a couple times and drop it

Videos kept cutting out either entirely or the sound would cut out. Made it very difficult to follow.

The course is not interesting. A lot of nothing was talked.
I didnt got realy much from the course.
By Yuxi X•
The professor talks too much about the website and his book! That doesn't make any sense!

I have fallen asleep during 3/4th week, and it have never happened to my during any of the Coursera courses... I'm sorry, but it completely failed my expectations. 3 weeks out of 7 gone, and I have learnt absolutely nothing about dogs. Yes, I got some psychological basis, but that's not what I looked for/ The lecturer politely suggests to buy his book ... well if it is the same quality as the presented course, than it's useless...

Not to keen on spending $75 for a piece of paper that doesn't even mean anything it's not like the university that provides the course even recogonizes the course as literally anything why would anyone else? just because you paid $75! I could just make up a certificate and say I've got it and it would hold the same value as this, just because it's free doesn't mean it should be worthless....

Okay.... this class is very pointless. It is super boring and gives me little information. He says that you do not need to buy his book or visit his suggested website, however that is all he talks about.
At least the tests are not focused on that, its mostly on vague points he explains. I would not recommend this class.
