Claudia Fugazza


Dr. Claudia Fugazza is a researcher at the Department of Ethology at Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest.
Her major fields of study are social learning, imitation, language learning and processing in dogs, and exceptional cognitive performance.
During her PhD, she developed a training method called Do as I Do (named after Hayes & Hayes 1952 and Topál et al. 2006) which relies on dogs’ social cognitive skills. This method is now used both as a paradigm to study dogs’ cognitive abilities and for applied dog training purposes. She is currently working on a project on language learning and processing in dogs.
