I so enjoyed this conversation on the “Love and Psychology of Dogs” and am excited to share it with you! The guests on this podcast episode are Dr. Nancy Shay, veterinarian and Jeannette Carpenter, dog walker. Join us as we discuss the following and more:
- our thoughts on recent research on the “intelligence,” including emotional intelligence, of dogs
- dogs’ emotions and sense of morality
- amazing research on the effects dog ownership has on the health of children and adults
Dr. Nancy has worked at the Highlands Veterinary Hospital in Sparta, New Jersey for 22 years. She has a special interest in physical rehabilitation and animal behavior. She earned her veterinary degree from University College Dublin Veterinary School of Ireland and is currently working toward her certification in canine rehabilitation.
Jeannette Carpenter has owned her own dog walker/pet sitter business for 10 years. I have aways enjoyed and appreciated her funny and moving stories about her “clients.” In this recorded conversation I especially enjoyed learning about her two styles of walks she gives her dogs.
