Hitler may be on the short list of despicable dictators most undeserving of a dog's unconditional love, but that didn't stop him from trying to talk them.

According to a new book titled "Amazing Dogs: A Cabinet of Canine Curiosities," Nazi specialists attempted -- apparently with some success -- to train a fleet of "intelligent" dogs to read, write and speak.

The research comes from Cardiff University associate professor Dr. Jan Bondeson, who found that the Nazis collected pups from across Germany and put them through intense training during the 1930s at the Tier-Sprechschule ASRA (School for Dog-Human Communication) in the town of Leutenberg.

Actually the dogs they experimented on came from deported Jews. From what I've read, the dogs were being trained to act as soldiers on the battlefield but ended up entertaining the Nazi soldiers instead.

Wayne,
Every dog owner knows that dog are more intelligent than most people give them credit for.
There was a great article yesterday on yahoo that researchers think that dogs have about
the same intelligence as a 6 month old baby. \:D/


So that is why one of my dogs will run through the invisible fence and then whine for us to come out and get him back into the yard?

Invisible fence? It's amazing he got onto the other side in the first place! Imagine a 6 month old baby doing that! I'm sure a pig could figure it out though. Pigs are said to have the intelligence of a 3 year old ....

I imagine anything willing to take the shock of the collar set to the highest level for the time it takes to travel the distance the collar will shock on either side of the fence will be able to make it through. I would not without a very good reason. The jolt will tingle for several minutes on the low setting.

Perhaps the love they're getting on the other side of the fence makes it worthwhile...and the food on your side. :-

They are both "fixed" so there is one instinct that is removed, but what it is that causes the fence to be ignored is beyond me at this point.
