Metadata[+] Show full item record
Given the large proportion of households that include pets, this is perhaps a most important time to consider human-companion animal interaction as a vehicle to facilitate One Health (human-animal health). The potential benefits of this interaction is worthy of exploration for a number of health problems, such as obesity. The presentation will describe a program of research aimed at testing dog walking as an intervention aimed at improving physical activity and health for humans and dogs. The implications for public private partnerships will be discussed.
