I've used eye movement in training for years now. It's a great tool, but success really varies from one dog to another. My Staffie knew to look at my eyes when I used a "pointing command" but orherwise didn't make much eye contact. My current pup is constantly making eye contact, and I can already tell him to leave the room and where to go with nothing but my eyes.

I always knew you had super powers.

Funny, if I raised an eyebrow I could control my kids. Doesn't work as well on the dogs. Big Grin

It appears more likely Cats domesticated themselves by feasting on the vermin being easy prey in early sheltered civilizations. Humans actually took in these Doge's and connected to them to make them extra useful.

Dogs may have domesticated themselves also by cleaning up scraps (acting as hygiene patrol) and working security, warning of intruders.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Interesting. I have noticed that the mini schnauzer we got this summer will just stare at my face for an extended time in a different way than our previous labrador did. Its like he is studying me.
