Join Willamette Humane Society for PETtalks, our monthly lecture series! Why do we call dogs “man’s best friend?” Learn about the ethology and psychology behind attachment bonds—the science that drives this age-old connection between humans and canines.
We will discuss what scientists know about the styles and benefits of bonding between mothers/fathers and their offspring; how this knowledge has been extended to study cross-species relationships and; how we might apply that knowledge when parenting our pets.The lectures are held in the WHS Education Hall and there is a $5 suggested donation.
About Our Guest Speaker: Monique Udell, Ph. D.
Monique is an Assistant Professor of Animal Sciences at Oregon State University. She has studied a wide range of animals and behavior topics, but is especially interested in human-animal bonds and the impact these bonds have on the behavior and success of both species.
