GIUMELLI, Raísa Duquia  e  SANTOS, Marciane Cleuri Pereira. Living with pets: a phenomenological study. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.1, pp. 49-58. ISSN 1809-6867.

This article presents a research about the influence of living with pets in people's life, from the perception of pet tutors. The volunteers for the research were six students of university, tutors of at least one pet. Through semi-structured interviews, it was possible to collect the participant's profile, their perception about the influence of pets in people's life, the benefits, the harm and feelings involved in this relationship. The participants' average age was 22 years old, two being male and four being female. Analysing on the results obtained through the phenomenological method, it was observed that all the interviewees brought positive elements in the relationship with their pets, while the negatives were associated with hygiene, disease and death of the animal.

Palavras-chave : Pets; Human-animal's relationship; Phenomenological research.
