Can you do this?  Can you help us  help dogs?

We have a two minute video of a beautiful, sleeping dog, Joy.  We need to see if people can see when this dog breathes in this video – that is, can you count how many times this dog breaths in two minutes?

If you do this, you will be participating in an international research project.

Once you have counted, email your answer to  This will automatically enter you for a free drawing for the e-book: “Talk to me! A communication guide for people who live and work with animals”

Then, we will repost this video with the sound so you can check out the answer for yourself.

If you want more information on this project, and want to follow our results, you can join our FREE newsletter.  Click here for newsletter!

Plus, we will be posting more information on the PawDogs ( and Syn Alia forums (
