TheDogPlace launched 1998 as the "World's First Public Website"




TheDogPlace video theater uses sight and sound to expand articles, thereby enabling viewers to quickly absorb large amounts of information.





Chaser, professor John Philly's Border Collie dog, knows over a 1,000 words but more amazing, he  understands verbs and sentence structure and responds accordingly. SEEING is believing in these two videos!


When you watch these astounding videos, think about how much we underestimate our dogs. Some college graduates believe that only humans can "reason".  Most scientists would have us believe that only people can "think" but if that were so, God wouldn't have bothered to give us dogs. 


And next time your dog looks at you with his head cocked and a question in his eyes... speak more clearly!
