Genetic Canine Agression

By Isabella O'Toole

Abstract

Canine aggression can pose a serious concern for public and animal welfare. Most of what we know about aggression comes from bite statistics, expert opinions and breed-specific aggressiveness. These sources can often be misleading due to biases toward large or powerful breeds. In this review, I will examine a study that suggest a small number of genes control aggression.
