An Open Discussion With Sindhoor Pangal
About the event:
This is an open chat with Sindhoor, who has observed street dogs for many years and with whom we can discuss the difference between family dogs and streeties.
We aim to discuss how street dogs live around children and how kids behave around street dogs. Such discussion can lead us to better understand dogs and how they would freely chose to interact with small humans, if at all.
It can also give us an insight of how some children choose to interact with street dogs.
All participants will be invited to ask questions to Sindhoor and will also be invited to give their opinions.
