    Fantastic chart, @Trellum ! Now that we don't have a yard anymore, I took Capone to the church's parking lot and play fetch with him. He loves it but it has been raining for an entire week already. We are so couped up in the house now.

    I posit that on another dimension, training a dog exposes it with additional lifeskills that it didn't possess by dint of instinct which would enable it to survive in a greater variety of environments and be able to integrate into the family more easily. Training improves the dog's cognitive skills. This happens through the generation of new units of neurons which are responsible for cognition.
