Decision making processes in purchasing a dog

Social Psychology

The human-dog relation can be healthy, but only under certain conditions, such as a good relationship with the dog. Problems in the human-dog relation may be caused by a distorted decision to purchase a dog, probably caused by strong affective motives to own a dog.
