Dog lovers can find out more about the ancient relationship between humans and these animals at the exhibition “We and dogs: the art of unparalleled friendship”, which is on display at Mooca Plaza Shopping, in São Paulo, until the 31st. July.
The show uses technology and interactivity to explore various topics related to dogs. To visit the facilities, it is not necessary to leave pets at home: the exhibition was designed so that tutors and animals can walk together between the rooms.
The exhibition was curated by journalist Jaime Spitzcovsky, who was inspired by educational exhibitions in the United States, Italy and France to portray the deep relationship with “man’s best friend”.
Despite being inspired by exhibitions abroad, Brazil is one of the most favorable countries to receive it: the country is the second in population of pets in the world, with more than 54 million dogs living here, according to data from Abinpet. (Brazilian Association of Pet Products Industry).
The visit begins with the beginning of the friendship between men and dogs, 40 thousand years ago, with the process of domestication of animals. One of the environments has a training simulation, where the visitor can simulate commands and a virtual puppy responds to stimuli.
Those who walk through the show also see the origins of different groups of canine breeds and mixed-breed dogs (SRDs), and through a game, they can discover which breed best suits their lifestyle.
In one of the wings, it is possible to experience the world as dogs do: sensory stimuli simulate the way dogs see, smell and feel the world around them.
At the end of the circuit, visitors can learn about adoption and responsible custody.
The exhibition is open for visits until the end of July, and runs between Tuesdays and Sundays. Each visit session holds up to 45 people and reservations can be made online. On Tuesdays, the visit is free.
