The hormone of Oxytocin plays a central role in relationships and trust- building. It induces labor before birth and is released during orgasm. It also stimulates the production of breast milk and strengthens trust. In addition to its reproductive functions, oxytocin also influences social interactions. However, the “cuddle hormone” also plays an important role in interactions with other mammals. For example, the interaction between dog and owner generates the release of oxytocin in both the dog and the owner. This may be why humans and dogs are particularly good at activating each other’s oxytocinergic systems.
