Can this translate to both "Can dogs dream?" and "Will the dog dream"?

You can imagine a small child asking this about their new puppy that's just fallen asleep.

I've watched my dog dream before. Cracked me up. He was whimpering, pawing at the floor, then woke himself up with a sudden bark.

All our dogs dreamed for sure. And at least some of our cats.

I had a sentence before: 狗在冰箱里. In that case the answer is no....

Is 会 "can" or "will" in this sentence?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sonyChandr1

This is a can here

Isn't "会” for skills you can learn? Shouldn't it be replaced with "能" instead?

My question exactly. "Do dogs know how to dream?" Even by Duolingo standards that is a surreal thing to ask.
