Clive D.L. Wynne
Born in England, Clive Wynne studied at University College London receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in 1983 and received his Ph. D. from the University of Edinburgh in 1986. He has served on the faculty of the University of Western Australia, and the University of Florida, before arriving at Arizona State University in 2013.
He is the founding director of the Canine Science Collaboratory at Arizona State University. Previously, he was founding director of the Canine Cognition and Behavior Laboratory at the University of Florida, the first lab of its kind in the United States.
He has written several books such as:
The Mental Lives of Animals (2002) https://amzn.to/338KdGK (https://amzn.to/338KdGK)
Do Animals Think? (2004) https://amzn.to/370lyVJ (https://amzn.to/370lyVJ)
Animal Cognition: Evolution, Behavior, and Cognition (2013) https://amzn.to/395L0vN (https://amzn.to/395L0vN)
and his most recent work,
Dog Is Love: How and Why Your Dog Loves You (2020) https://amzn.to/2UNV2t0 (https://amzn.to/2UNV2t0)
His broad interest is in comparative psychology understood to include the evolution, development and progress of the behavior of individuals and groups of nonhuman animals. The behaviors Wynne is interested in range from simple conditioning to complex cognitions.
His approach is behaviorist in his emphasis on parsimonious explanations, cognitive in his interest in rich behaviors, and ethological in his concern to see behavior as a tool in animals’ adaptation to their environments. The specific focus of ongoing research is the behavior of dogs and their wild relatives. In this domain Wynne's group studies the ability of pet dogs to react adaptively to the behaviors of the people they live with; the deployment of applied behavior analytic techniques to the treatment of problem behaviors in dogs; the behaviors of shelter dogs that influence their chances of adoption into human homes, as well as the welfare of shelter dogs; improved methods for training sniffer dogs; the development of test banks for studying cognitive aging in pet dogs; humans as social enrichment for captive canids; among others.
Wynne has lived and worked in Germany and Australia as well as the United States and gives frequent talks to audiences around the world. The author of several academic books and of more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific journal articles that count among the most highly cited studies on dog psychology, he has also published pieces in Psychology Today, New Scientist, and the New York Times, and has appeared in several television documentaries about dog science on National Geographic Explorer, PBS, and the BBC. He currently lives in Tempe, Arizona.
