They’re Our Best Friends But Why Do They Like Us and What Can We Do to Improve the Relationship?

Dr. Gary Borjesson on Pet Life Radio ........

..Dr. Gary Borjesson

They may be our companions, helpers, even surrogate children.  We think we know why we want and need canines around but why do dogs need us?  Do they even like us?  Is it more than our ability to open a can of dog food?  What do we add to their lives?  Are they really looking for a master to dominate them or a pal that will obligingly lavish biscuits and praise? 

Dr. Gary Borjesson, in his book Willing Dogs and Reluctant Masters offers a philosopher’s view of the journey these two disparate social creatures have taken to become best friends.
