EP9: Do our DOGS Really Love Us?
Listen now
Tony really loves his dog Holly Berry, but does she really love him back? During lockdown there was a huge surge in the demand for dogs and the ‘pandemic puppy’ became something of a cliché. Now we are all going back to work, these dogs are being left home alone more often and the ‘post pandemic’ dog’s life is potentially very lonely. As a keen dog owner, Tony wants to know more about the history of dogs: dog evolution, keeping dogs as pets and why it is that we turn to dogs to bring us comfort in difficult times.  Hosted by Sir Tony Robinson Twitter | Instagram Clive Wynne / Twitter @caninecognition     Professor, Department of Psychology, Arizona State University.
