If only he could talk…

A new theory suggests that a dog’s behaviour reflects its owner’s emotional state. Editor-in-Chief Suzy Walker tries to decode pet Oscar’s conduct to learn more about herself

Oscar, my cute cocker spaniel, is barking and scratching to be let into my boss’s office, where I’m having a meeting. I am lucky the company I work for allows me to bring Oscar to work. He’s Psychologies’ mascot, a symbol of unconditional love. He presides over my Editor’s letter, and the office, and he’s loved by all (well, apart from my previous boss, who has never quite forgiven Oscar for cocking his leg on his briefcase while we were in the middle of a disagreement). But, no matter how much we love him, it’s important that he’s well behaved, or his days in the office will be numbered.

That’s why I’m trying out Anubis therapy, an intriguing new way of thinking that suggests our dog’s behaviour is a reflection of our feelings, and encourages us to explore how our furry friends can help us become more aware of our deepest emotions; those we may have buried.
