Abstract

Dogs exhibit characteristic looking patterns when looking at human faces but little is known about what the underlying perceptual and cognitive mechanisms are or how much these are influenced by individual experience. These findings indicate that dogs can discriminate human faces by processing either the face parts or their configuration, but need specific experience in the former case.
