California science exhibit explains the dog-human friendship

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Did people domesticate dogs or was it the other way around? And why do these two species seem to think so much alike, act so much alike and get along so well?

The California Science Center has spent the past five years sniffing out the answers to those and hundreds of other vexing canine questions. It will begin revealing the conclusions Saturday with an ambitious, if somewhat lighthearted, new exhibition called “Dogs! A Science Tail.”

And, yes, real dogs will be there. (Just try hiding contraband from that drug-sniffing dog and see what happens.)

“It’s really not about just dogs and science. It’s really about how dogs and humans are both social animals. About how dogs and humans have evolved together over thousands of years. And the fact that because we are both social animals, we’ve learned to work together,” said Jeffrey Rudolph, the center’s president and a devoted dog lover who worked for years to pull this show together.
