The view of the apparatus used from above (left column) and from the front (right column) in the different phases of the study: a training phase in which the rope ends were entwined for the whole length of the rope, b training phase in which the rope ends were positioned close to each other such that they were touching for the whole length of the rope, c training phase in which the rope ends were 2 cm apart for the whole length of the rope, d training phase in which the rope ends were 5 cm apart for the whole length of the rope, e transfer task in which the rope ends were positioned such that close to the box they were far apart (this is where dogs tended to grab the rope) and were close together closer to the ground, f testing phase in which the rope ends were so far apart so that one dog alone could not succeed in obtaining the food
