In 1980 the first author advanced a model of wolf and dog information processing suggesting that natural selection has favored evolution in the gray wolf (Canis lupus) of two concurrent systems of information processing. The more recently acquired system was characterized as "cognitive" and was suggested to have evolved in response to pressures that accompanied the rise of group hunting and that are relaxed under conditions of domestication.
