Human-Animal Interaction Conference Coming to U.S. for the First Time


International Association of Human Animal Interaction Organizations (IAHAIO) Conference is coming to the U.S. for the first time ever, at the Convention of the American Veterinary Medical Association, July 20-22 in Chicago, IL. And anyone interested in human/animal relationships can attend, that’s what so cool! Listen HERE from Steve Dale’s Pet World, as Dr. Sandra McCune, science leader at WALTHAM in the UK offers details. She talks about how today there is growing evidence that simply growing up with a pet is healthful, even managing body weight. Children with dogs aren’t as likely to be total couch potatoes and will move around more than those who don’t have the benefit of having a dog at home.
