Have you ever wondered how dogs think about the world? Listen in as Laurie Santos, Ph. D. discusses her studies and findings about dogs at The Canine Cognition Center at Yale University. She is the director of the research facility located in the Psychology Department at Yale University. Santos and her team of Yale scientists study how dogs think about the world. She talks about how the center is devoted to learning more about canine psychology—how dogs perceive their environment, solve problems, and make decisions. Their findings teach us how the dog mind works, which can help us to better develop programs to improve how we train and work with our canine friends.

It has often been said that the love of a dog is the closest thing to divine love we will ever receive in this world. To honor that, our show will highlight the unique human/canine connection by speaking of the strengths, sorrows and stories of purpose that dogs bring to our lives. We will learn about the miraculous ways that non-profit agencies train dogs to better the lives of the people they serve, and how that enriches the dog’s life as well. Through call in stories, we will hear about the deep connection, bravery, silliness, and love shared between a dog and everyone its life touches. We will also cover important topics such as training, wellness and maintaining your dog’s health and fitness. If you love dogs, this is the show for you!

After a successful run as a VoiceAmerica Host on Fear is Negotiable: Business Survival Skills 101, covering emergency preparedness in businesses, she decided to switch gears to talk about her true passion, dogs and their uniquely close relationship with humans.
Pam’s love affair with all things canine started when she was young, where she traveled throughout the west coast competing in dog shows with her client’s dogs, and also in obedience events with her own dogs. That was a long time ago, but the love of dogs was like a siren song, calling her back.
Now, Pam is focusing the show on education and creating awareness of all the ways dogs and human enrich each other’s lives.
