Dogs and Dog People vs. Cats and Cat People: Identity and Pet Culture is a 90 minute webinar, live online on June 16, 2015 and then recorded for OnDemand purchase and viewing. Join Anthropologist and Anthrozoologist Heather Frigiola, MS as she discusses how Americans’ alignments as “dog people” and “cat people” are based on individuals’ self-projection onto one or the other species and how this perception may influence our pets. Our relationship with our companion animals permeates many facets of our culture and society, including our own individual identities. Dogs and cats are by far the most favored companion species, yet most Americans love one species more than the other. They also tend to impose differing sets of cultural values onto dogs and cats, which creates two different subcultures that are frequently at odds with one another. This cultural dynamic has both positive and negative consequences for the animals. This talk is moderated by Dr. Giovanna Rosenlicht, DVM.
