Are They Pets or Babies?


Listen HERE veterinary behaviorist Dr. Debra Horwitz, past president of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists We discuss whether or not our pets should be deemed our babies, from Steve Dale’s Pet World?

Of course, we know pets aren’t really babies – but increasingly owners are calling pets “my babies.” Is this really a bad thing?

Can we love our pets too much? Can we love our pets in the wrong way? Is there a disservice by calling them babies or furry children?

Also, here’s the first announcement of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists book on dog behavior and problem behaviors, which I edited, (tentatively) called “Your Dog’s Eye View,” scheduled for release in 2013. The book covers everything from what to do with the new puppy, the truth about ‘dominance training,’ to compulsive behaviors and separation anxiety to how to you can potentially slow down the aging process in your dog.
