Description

<p>Tony really loves his dog Holly Berry, but does she really love him back?&nbsp;During lockdown there was a huge surge in the demand for dogs and the ‘pandemic puppy’ became something of a cliché.&nbsp;Now we are all going back to work, these dogs are being left home alone more often and the ‘post pandemic’ dog’s life is potentially very lonely.&nbsp;As a keen dog owner, Tony wants to know more about the history of dogs: dog evolution, keeping dogs as pets and why it is that we turn to dogs to bring us comfort in difficult times.&nbsp;</p><br><p><strong>Hosted by Sir Tony Robinson </strong></p><p><a href="https://twitter.com/tony_robinson?lang=en" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank"><strong>Twitter</strong></a> | <a href="https://www.instagram.com/sirtonyrobinson/?hl=en" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank"><strong>Instagram</strong></a></p><br><p><strong>Clive Wynne / Twitter @caninecognition&nbsp;</strong>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Professor, Department of Psychology, Arizona State University.
