Moreover, the posted rules at the park do not precisely define what is expected or inappropriate dogbehavior. It is also unclear whether people read or understand dog park

expectations engendered by childhood stories, normal dogbehaviour—chewing, digging, and barking—may result in relinquishing the dog for adoption and subsequent euthanasia. Shifting to the scientific realm, the paper discusses the on-going debate on the study of animals’ human- like abilities, most salient in
