How do you know if your dog really loves you? What’s happening in a dog’s brain when they’re with their favourite human? And how can close human-dog bonds help people, and dogs, heal from trauma?
In this episode of How We’re Wired, join producer Dr Eva Higginbotham as she uncovers the history of the dog-human relationship; from scientific proof that our dogs love us to the genetics of dog sociability, and a look at the healing relationship between a dog and their person.
With special thanks to Beth, Emma the dog, and Clive Wynne
