A recent Harvard Medical School report, “Get Healthy, Get a Dog,” (http://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/having-a-dog-can-help-your-heart–literally) highlights the many health and social benefits of having a dog, including reducing stress, being more active, and promoting social connection. Here we meet a few prominent members of Harvard’s canine community, and learn from Elizabeth Pegg Frates, clinical assistant professor at the Medical School, about how they might be a wonderful addition to any community.
