1119. Dr. Helen Fisher says, “Dogs are chick magnets!”
Listen now
Description
Dr. Helen Fisher is a Senior Research Fellow at The Kinsey Institute. She’s been studying the correlation between pets and dating. Dr. Fisher says, “Dogs are chick magnets!” Women find men with a dog to be more attractive. But interestingly, or not, this does not work in reverse. In fact, the ‘cat lady’ has a negative stigma. Also, police in Bellevue, Tennessee recently raided a national pet store chain location after getting a tip and photos concerning animal cruelty. That tip, along with the pictures, came from an employee at the PetSmart store. Also, if you don’t own a home and you have a pet, you know that finding a home to rent that accepts pets can be difficult. According to a poll, 64% of respondents felt landlords should have the right to refuse to rent to pet owners, compared to 36% who felt landlords should not be able to deny a tenant’s pets. Of course, opinions varied between homeowners and tenants. Also, while pet insurance may seem like a good value, be sure to check to fine print. Some breeds predisposed to certain ailments, like hip-dysplasia, may be excluded from certain insurance policies, especially if your pet has been seen before for problems related to the claim.
