Summary "Within the last 30 years the study of the impact of companion animals on people has evolved from a hobby of pet owners to an appreciation of the human-animal bond as a recognized concept. The "bond" is now even an area worthy of scientific study at institutions of higher learning all over the world. The "bond" is a topic of study in a variety of academic disciplines, including psychology, nursing, geriatrics, child development, social work, and animal behavior. There is ever developing evidence that the bond between people and their companion animals contributes to improving human health."--BOOK JACKET.
