Episode 457 – Peter Pan Human-Animal Bonds I

This podcast is the first in a series on human-companion animal bonds based on childhood beliefs about animals or ourselves that persist into adulthood. When they do, these Peter Pan beliefs may create problems for the animal, the person, and the quality and duration of the bond between them.

When it comes to that past perfect pet, what factors can stymie our plans to make those memories real again? What must we be willing to give up? What can we hang on to? This first podcast explores some of the pitfalls that may await us when we try to recreate that perfect pet experience we remember from childhood in our adult lives today.
