Two New Posts: Dog Walking and Favourites

Two posts look at dog walking behaviour and my personal favourite blog posts.

One puppy whispers to another about two new blog posts


By Zazie Todd, PhD

This week I have two new posts for you.

At my Psychology Today blog Fellow Creatures, I look at some new research on the links between dog ownership, dog walking, physical health, and the human-animal bond.

“What I was excited about were the associations we found between the strength of the bond with the dog and dog-walking behaviour,” said Dr. Jessica Bibbo, one of the authors of the study.

Read the full story here.


And in a guest post for Dr. Jo Righetti’s Pet Problems Solved, I share my five favourite Companion Animal Psychology articles. These are the posts I wish everyone would read about cats, dogs, and how best to care for them.

Find out which ones I chose here.

  1. Hey, thanks for these articles, that first one is especially good.
    It's another reminder that having a dog can be a great way to make sure you're getting enough sunlight and exercise every day, which are super important lifestyle factors that help guard against poor health and conditions like depression, heart disease, and even cancer. The best part is that this is true for our dogs as well!
    Good articles, thanks for the read.
