Join Monique Udell, Ph. D., CAAB on Thursday, April 13 at 12:00PM PT/3:00PM ET for “Becoming a Secure Base: Using science to improve human-animal bonds and welfare,” the latest offering in the Maddie’s® Insights webcast series.

Many people feel that they have shared a strong bond with a dog, and there is growing scientific evidence that these dogs also form strong bonds with their humans. However, science also tells us that not all bonds are created equal. The kind and quality of attachment relationship shared can influence a dog’s behavior and welfare outcomes. Dr. Udell will provide an overview of attachment theory, including what it means to be a Secure Base, and how this knowledge can be applied to better understand and improve dog-human relationships and the relationships shared between humans and other animals.

Dr. Udell is also an Associate Professor of Animal Sciences at Oregon State University and the Human-Animal Interactions Lab Director.
