A Dog's Life
Thursday, Jun. 10, 2004; 11:27 AM

Editors Note:Audio on this video is very low.

The video clip shows the very first session of the identification task, in which a novel item is requested by using a novel name. Rico is first instructed to bring two familiar items; first the "tyrex" (the blue dinosaur), and next the "weihnachtsmann" (the little red doll). Subsequently, a novel word ("sirikid") is used to ask for the novel item, the white bunny.
