More than 54 million households in America have a dog. And while many might consider their dog a member of the family or best friend, a new survey reveals that dog owners have a lot to learn about their pets when it comes to healthy aging, the human/dog bond, canine brain health and nutrition.
As leaders in canine nutrition and cognitive development, Purina Pro Plan and Dognition have teamed up to educate dog owners about brain health and give them tools to help support physical, cognitive and emotional health in their dogs.
Join me in a recent interview with Dr. Brian Hare, canine cognition expert/researcher at Duke University and Founder of Dognition, as he discusses:
New survey results that provide insight on the following topics and more:
* The relationship and emotional connection between humans and dogs.
* Factors that impact canine brain health and what concerns dog owners most about their aging pets.
* What consumers know about canine cognition, their dogs’ personalities and the amazing jobs dogs have that help humans.
* Tools for keeping a dog’s brain healthy throughout their life.
