I joined Jim Mora on Radio New Zealand’s Sunday Morning to talk about some recent news articles that cover research that finds that pets can have benefits for people. Or in one case that we discuss near the end of the interview, ،entially have a detrimental effect (but you’ll be glad to know more research is needed).

A،st other things, we talk about the way that dogs can encourage adults to get their daily exercise and can encourage girls to do more physical activity. And another study looks at the cognitive benefits of having a pet for seniors w، live alone.

We also talk about the lifespan of various breeds of dog and the factors that affect it.
