Humans and animals have lived closely together over thousands of years. This symbiotic relationship was originally rooted in benefits to humans and animals through providing/finding food sources, warmth, and protection. Over time animals—particularly companion animals—have come to play more interactive roles in the lives of people. The gradually evolving science of human-animal interaction (HAI) is showing strong evidence that these roles are physically, emotionally, and socially beneficial for people and companion animals. This presentation will explore the myriad wellness outcomes of HAI for not only people, but for the animals that they keep company with.
