When you talk to a dog does the dog talk back?
Many people think so. But for a long time, scientists didn’t know how our furry friends learned to communicate with people.
Luckily, Russian scientist Dmitri Belyaev had a plan. If he could tame wild red foxes, he could learn how dogs first came from wolves. By studying the way these foxes changed during domestication, the mystery of communication would be solved at last.
More than 50 years after the experiment began, Belyaev’s foxes have become so tame, you can have one as a pet! Packed with eye-popping photos and first-hand research FOX TALK reveals the story of these amazing animals… and everything they’ve taught us about wolves, dogs, and communication.
