Can Your Dog Tell If You Lie To Them? | A Dog Movie That Digs Deep
How do dogs know if a human is trying to deceive them and how do they react? Also, behind the scenes of a tearjerker of a dog movie, The Art of Racing in the Rain.
Can your dog tell if you lie to them?
Dogs as lie detectors – who’d have thought it? Humans and dogs may have different genetics, but they may be more similar than we think in how they perceive deception. A recent study shows dogs, unlike children, will literally ignore people who are lying. And that means there is no fooling our four-legged friends.
Dogs will ignore you if they think you’re lying

Can Dogs Tell Time? | Dogs In The Movies
On today’s show, do dogs understand time and what is behind their internal clock? Then we take time out to celebrate the canine stars of the big screen with author and film journalist Wendy Mitchell.
Can dogs tell the time?
If you ever get the feeling your dog knows what time it is, you’re not alone. But without telling the time in the literal sense, how do they seemingly know when it’s time to eat, time to sleep or time to play fetch? The answer isn’t straight forward, in fact there’s more than one reason at play. We take a look at this phenomenon and some of the factors that could have you believing your dog is secretly wearing a watch.
Do dogs have a concept of time?

Saving Dogs With Planes, Trains & Automobiles | Girls With Dogs
To mark international dog day, we are celebrating the tireless life-saving work so many animal lovers do across the globe, with ‘Doobert’ aka Uber for dogs and the pilot-turned-orthopaedic-surgeon-turned-dog-shelter-rescuer.
Doobert: Free Uber for dogs
By day Chris Roy is an IT professional and by night and weekends, he’s an avid animal rescuer, pilot and superhero who loves to dream up new ways that technology can help people help animals.
Chris Roy started flying animal rescues, transporting shelter dogs from high-kill locations to places where they were more likely to be adopted. But realizing that coordinating the ground and aviation legs was not as simple as it could be, he created a system to coordinate the trips . And he named it after his cat: Doobert. Doobert is a volunteer based Uber-like service with tens of thousands of volunteers across the US, that any rescue or shelter can use. It is kind of like match.com where rescues and shelters connect with each other and with volunteers who transport the animals wherever they need to go. The online platform has become a household name in the world of pet rescue, and it all started with a 17-year-old, 15-pound cat called Doobert.

Your Dog's Poo Can Track You! | Why Dogs Sleep On Their Back
In a case of CSI Israel, how one council plans to clean up its sidewalks from wayward poop. The truth behind why dogs sleep on their backs and why our furry friends are the ultimate drying machines.
How dog poo could land dog owners in the proverbial!
Almost every suburb in every city around the world has the same problem. Recalcitrant dog owners who don’t pick up after their pups. But an Israeli city council is making moves to change that, with plans to add every pet dog’s DNA to a database, so abandoned poo can be tested and owners traced and fined. It might be harsh, but no doubt there will be dog owners AND non-dog owners who would support it. Are you one?
Israeli Council introduces DNA database to track owners not picking up after dogs
Belly up, paws out: What’s with that position?
Ever wondered why your pooch lays on their back, paws in the air, belly exposed? While it is cute and looks like they want a tummy rub (both of which are true), there are some very solid reasons as to why they do it. We paw over the paws up position and find out what is really going on.

Dogs: The Ultimate Drying Machine
Next time your dog shakes himself, watch. What looks like an attempt to paint the walls with mud is actually a feat of engineering. Being able to shake yourself almost completely dry in 4 seconds is a survival instinct for dogs. But for scientists, it's something to emulate. David Hu, Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Biology at Georgia Tech University, explains. What you'll learn in this segment has been applied to everything from dryers to cameras!

About David Hu
David Hu is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Biology at Georgia Tech. He studies animal movements to learn how to improve human tools. The undulations of sandfish may seem like a trivial matter, a mere pretty sight, but in the world of engineering and physics, the way an animal moves divulges tons of information. Insects can show us how to avoid crashes. Dogs can show us how to dry clothes quickly and efficiently. By watching animals in the lab, in the rainforest, and in the home, we can make more elegant devices. Even robots take their cues from the way animals leverage physical laws! Professor Hu is the author of How to Walk on Water and Climb Up Walls: Animal Movement and the Robots of the Future. His next book, also on animal movements, is a work in progress.

Can dogs help politicians get elected?
If a politician poses with their pooch or they post about their pup on social media, what influence might it have on you and your perception of them? Might it affect how you vote?
