Within the last few years, I've developed a growing fascination with animal behavior, particularly with canines. Consequently, last year I read the book “Dog Sense: How the New Science of Dog Behavior Can Make You a Better Friend to Your Pet” by anthrozoologist John Bradshaw. I remember thinking to myself, "What is an anthrozoologist?" and looked to Google. It was then I realized that my interest in understanding the human-animal bond was in fact an academic field of study!
I had just missed the deadline to apply, so I had to wait a whole year! And I'm so glad I did. I've come even further in my journey of learning how to deepen our bonds with our animal companions. I applied at the end of January and received this about two weeks ago!
