Abstract:
This science fair project was conducted to compare the intelligence levels of female and male dogs. The science project experiment was done using 3 different types of tests on dogs.
 
Procedure preview:
1. For this science fair project, the independent variables are the gender of the dogs and the type of test done on the dogs. The dependent variable is the length of time the dogs take to complete the tasks they are given. This is  measured using a stopwatch.
