Made for Each Other: The Biology of the Human-Animal Bondby Meg Daley Olmert
Nothing turns a baby’s head more quickly from nursing or playing than the sight of a dog or any animal. Made for Each Other lays out both sides of this deep mutual connection and the way it has evolved since prehistoric times. Drawing on the fascinating work of scientists in many fields, from neuroscience to zoology and anthropology, as well as her own investigations, Meg Daley Olmert shows the roots of this age-old bond and its great importance to our well being.

"I’ve finished Made for Each Other, and do indeed recommend it for people who are interested in animal behavior in general, and specifically the biology behind the relationship we have with domestic animals....It's a great read."
Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States
"Made for Each Other was, for me, the most stimulating book of the year."
Jackson Hole News & Guide (WY), 12/17/14
“Offers all kinds of thought-provoking material assembled from research, but
never reads like a dull textbook.”
