“I can understand dogs that can get along with other dogs. I don’t know about all of them,” he says.
“Some of them do not want to be around other dogs. That can get a little bit crazy,” he says, explaining there is a “little bit of a split-brain” in dogs’ social brains.
He hopes to develop further methods of studying dogs to determine whether isolation leads to any undesirable outcome for the animals or people.
