FLUENTPET INFO

What is FluentPet

FluentPet is a system of HexTiles and recordable sound buttons designed to help you teach your dog to communicate. It is inspired by Christina Hunger's work with her dog Stella.

Are you collaborating with the Speech Language Pathologist Christina Hunger?

Not currently, but we'd love to! We want to partner with anyone who can help spread the word about the potential of giving dogs and other animals better abilities to communicate and express themselves.

Who created FluentPet?

The FluentPet tiles and button system was developed by Leo Trottier, a San Diego-based cognitive scientist, in close collaboration with the Canine AAC Test Pilots, a group of people based in the US, Canada, Sweden, Netherlands, Australia, and beyond, who have made incredible progress teaching their dogs to use sound buttons to express themselves.

What kind of research are you doing?

FluentPet developer Leo Trottier is a PhD candidate in Cognitive Science at UC San Diego. We are working with the Comparative Cognition Laboratory at UC San Diego to better understand exactly how it is that dogs and other animals use, and are able to use, sound buttons to express themselves. For more on this, please check out How.TheyCanTalk.Org for information on how to join (and don't worry, you don't need to have FluentPet buttons to be a part of this!). Where are you based? The core of our team is in California, working remotely from San Diego and Oakland.
