My ten year old wants to do an experiment on whether or not our dogs have a concept of time. In other words, he wants to know if the dogs can differentiate between us being gone for five minutes vs five hours. How would he go about to find this out. My suggestion to him was to leave and come back at different time intervals and document the dogs reaction to when he returns. Is their reaction whether he's gone for a few minutes the same or is it more intense when were gone for several hours. Do you have any suggestions for him or links that he could go to. Surely, this must have been questioned before. Thanks for your help or suggestions.
