So as humans we are self aware. We know what we look like and can recognize ourselves and feel emotions and such. Scientist's say that there are other animals that are self aware like us ex: elephants, apes, dolphins, etc. However they say that dogs are not. my question is: can we make dogs or other animals self aware? at least of themselves?
If you put a dog in front of a mirror they aren't going to recognize themselves. But if you are in the reflection too your dog should recognize you because you are its owner. What i wonder is if somehow by using that reflection you could get your dog to recognize that its looking at its reflection thus making it self aware. Thoughts?
