Join canine expert Dr. Brian Hare as he takes a peek into the inner workings of a dog’s brain through the lens of human cognition. With a mix of upbeat stories and informative interviews from leading scientists, psychologists, anthropologists, veterinarians, and dog owners, Dr. Hare tackles questions of memory, word learning, nutrition, and even love.

This is so interesting. My husband and I have always wondered how much our dog understands and feels -- because we feel so connected to her.
I love how the science is interwoven with real stories.
Short, vague knowledge imparted by an artificially chipper host. I didn't time it but it felt like 4 of the 7 minute podcast was a bad Purina ad.
Not totally terrible...... Buuuut
Common knowledge mostly. And appears to be largely product placement. Pass.
