Article: A Survey of Research into Canine Cognition

Fascinating article into what dogs are capable of.  They often perform better than chimpanzees.  What I wonder is a chicken or an egg question - has domestication and so many years of working with humans raised their IQ, or did these innate abilities make them more likely to be domesticated?  I think at least partly the former, as all dogs are descended from wolves and at least once the article refers to dogs performing better than wolves.
