Abstract

We asked Hungarian pet dog owners to fill out a questionnaire about their verbal communication toward their dogs. Thirty-seven owners listed 430 different utterances (30 on average), which they thought their dogs knew. Twenty-one percent of these were synonyms. Utterances could be ranged into categories of actions (in ascending order of occurrence): Disallowance, Posture,Invitation, Referring to object or person, Unique, Information giving, Permission, Question. Owners believed that dogs executed 31% of commands "every time", 53% "in contextually adequate situations", and 16% only "occasionally". Age of the owners or dogs, breed of dogs, and the educational status of owners did not strongly affect the utterance structure. A large share ofsynonyms and actions were believed to be executed only in adequate situations, supporting our idea that the communication between dogs and owners could be described as a form of social understanding. Social understanding is defined as a complex cognitive process in which the subject is able to integrate contextual and social information, and modify his/her behaviour accordingly. The owners' verbal commands accompanying gestural and contextual cues could operate as information which facilitates the understanding process.
