Can I get started right away? Will you ship anything to me?

Once you have purchased your Dognition Assessment, you are all set and ready to go - there's nothing for us to ship.

With the account you set up and with your confirmation email, you can start your Dognition Experience any time with your pup. Dognition is an online application that you interact with using a computer/tablet and household items. Our website will outline what you should use for the gameplay. To speed things up for you, I’ll give you a list of what you need:

Your dog
A partner
3 plain pieces of paper (for the last set of games)
Sticky notes
2 non-transparent cups, (same size, shape, and color) (Note: you will need these midway through the games)
Treats (about 14 per set of games, dry kibble or small pieces work best)
6'x6' space (without distracting rugs, loud noises or other pets)
Bowl of water for your dog

When you are ready:
1. Go to and click on Log In in the top right corner.
2. Enter the email address that you registered with and the password that you set. You will be taken to your Dognition portal.
3. Here you register your dog, answer the canine personality questionnaire, and start gameplay.
