Human-Pet Interaction

Whether overindulging your dog could encourage them to misbehave or if there are ways to increase your emotional connection with your cat, there is a science to our relationships with our pets.
A researcher at USF Sarasota-Manatee is looking at how the interactions between humans and their animals contribute to the physical, social and psychological well-being of both man and beast. We have details on University Beat on WUSF Public Media.
