Wag the Human: the Influence of Canine Personality on Human Relationship Satisfaction and Well-Being
In this study we explore the relationship between humans and their animal companions. Building upon the human relationship literature suggesting that personalities play an important role in shaping relationships, we use personality assessments for human and dog to examine how both personalities impact relationship satisfaction. We further examine the impact of human-dog relationships on owner well-being. Some of our findings are consistent with the human personality and relationship literature, but others point to some unique aspects of the human-dog bond that shed light upon the special place animals hold in the hearts of their owners.
