Dog Is Love: Why and How Your Dog Loves You


Dr. Clive Wynne and a best friend

On my national Steve Dale’s Pet World show, I speak with Dr. Clive Wynne, author of Dog is Love: Why and How Your Dog Loves You  and I explain the question I get A LOT is, “Does my dog really love me?”

Wynne is among the increasing number of scientists now saying dog hormones in their brains are the same as ours, and dogs’ hormones respond the same as we do when we’re “gushy” with love.

Wynne says, “We are our dogs’ project.” Their lives revolve around everything we do and everything we feel. And he explains why he feels this way. We are rarely as engaged with our dogs as they are to us.

He adds that as a species we have actually relied on dogs for our survival.

Aside from science, he says just return home after being gone for a few hours. Your dog will tell you ‘I love you.
