Of course pet owners buy certain products that non-pet owners do not need. But, did you ever consider how owning a pet influences your shopping habits? We all need pet food, supplies, toys, treats, etc. How do we choose one product over another? What influences our buying decisions?

In this week’s episode, I’m speaking with Adrian Tennant. He is the Vice Pesident of Insights at Bigeye, an advertising agency based in Orlando, Florida. The company has recently done a research study, led by Tennant, to find out how owning a pet influence purchases, brand appeal and devices.

I recently ran into a problem trying to find a sweater for a new rescue pup that we adopted. It was difficult to find a sweater that was thick, warm and made from quality materials. I started looking into the materials used in most pet clothing, and was really disappointed with the quality of the garments for the price.

In this week’s episode, I am chatting with a like-minded fashion designer who recently launched a pet clothing company. You may recognize the name Ivy Higa from Season 8 of Project Runway. She has been working in the fashion industry for over a decade, and is now bridging that passion with her love of pets.

There is a longstanding narrative that dogs were domesticated from orphaned wolf pups. This narrative is being overturned with the emerging theory that we didn’t tame wolves into dogs, but instead, dog packs integrated with our families in an Alpha partnership. This developing theory is reinforced by recent DNA evidence, archaeological discoveries from Paleolithic caves and our own better understanding of dog dynamics.

I find this theory fascinating, and I wanted to speak with an expert that could help me understand more about it. Bernie Taylor is an independent naturalist, thought leader and author. His research explores the mythological connections and biological knowledge among prehistoric, indigenous and ancient peoples.

In this week’s episode, Bernie shares his thoughts on this interesting theory and the scientific proof that supports it.
