“Who we are with dogs is who we are as people,” says Alexandra Horowitz, head of the Dog Cognition Lab at Barnard College and author of Our Dogs Ourselves: The Story of a Singular Bond. Alexandra returns to Conversations Live to discuss how the relationship between us and our dogs affects both species. Find out why breeding can cause a myriad of problems, and why you might want to think twice about spaying/neutering.
Alexandra is the author of three previous books, Being a Dog, On Looking; and Inside of a Dog.. She is a professor at Barnard College, Columbia University, where she teaches seminars in canine cognition, creative nonfiction writing, and audio storytelling.
