Meet The Grown Man Who Lives His Life As A Domesticated Dog

When U.K. resident Rachel Watson agreed to marry Tom Peters, she had no idea that she’d also be marrying his desire to live as a human dog. After finding out about his canine lifestyle, they’ve since called off the engagement, but Rachel says the two of them are closer now than they ever were when she was in a relationship with him.


Tom Peters insists this new lifestyle is not focused on any sexual desire, but more from a place of comfort for him. This may be a sign of clinical lycanthropy a rare psychiatric syndrome that causes a delusion in the affected person to want to be turned into a non-human animal.

Tom and Rachel took to the ITV program, This Morning to discuss their current relationship as friends. Rachel says the documentary The Secret Life Of Human Pups in which Tom was featured, helped further her understanding of Tom and others like him. The documentary explores the hidden community of grown men who dress up like dogs for leisure.

For some this fulfills desires in the bedroom, for others like Tom, this fills a deep need and requirement of companionship. When he isn’t dressing up as a puppy, Tom works as a sound and lighting technician for a local theatre company in his hometown. His dedication to becoming a dog in his spare time has gone on for almost a decade.
