This project concerns the animal-man-relationship and its influence on the learning behaviour of the dog. To recognize the evolutionary root of specific behaviour comparing studies with the wolf are executed as well. For best results and to enable a wide exchange of experience a close cooperation with the Department for Ethology in Budapest and the Department for Neurbiology and Cognition is hoped for.
