DDC Veterinary is excited about research being conducted on the Genetics of Canine Hyper-Sociability. The study is being performed by Dr. Bridgett M. vonHoldt, Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, at Princeton University.
What is Canine Hyper-Sociability?
- Genetic findings provide a possible story for how humans domesticated wolves into dogs, which is suggested to have been through “the survival of the friendliest."
- The research group recently identified mutations in a handful of genes that influence how friendly a dog or wolf is towards humans.
