  1. Preventing skeletal and neurological problems in guide dogs for the blind and other working dogs

    Contributor(s):: Evans, K. M., Lewis, T. W.

  2. "Genetics and the Social Behavior of the Dog" Revisited: Searching for Genes Relating to Personality in Dogs.

    Contributor(s):: Enikõ Kubinyi, Mária Sasvári-Székely, Adám Miklósi

  3. Structural variants in genes associated with human Williams-Beuren syndrome underlie stereotypical hypersociability in domestic dogs

    Contributor(s):: Bridgett M. vonHoldt, Emily Shuldiner, Ilana Janowitz Koch, Rebecca Y. Kartzinel, Andrew Hogan, Lauren Brubaker, Shelby Wanser, Daniel Stahler, Clive D. L. Wynne, Elaine A. Ostrander, Janet S. Sinsheimer, Monique A. R. Udell

    Although considerable progress has been made in understanding the genetic basis of morphologic traits (for example, body size and coat color) in dogs and wolves, the genetic basis of their behavioral divergence is poorly understood. An integrative approach using both behavioral and genetic data...

  4. The Dog: A Domestic Wolf to Communicate with Man: The Aggressiveness of the Dog

    Contributor(s):: Jean-Mane Giffroy

    On the basis of research in archeozoology and molecular genetics, it is established that the wolf is the main ancestor of the dog and that domestication would have occurred some 14,000 or 15,000 years ago, 5,000 years before the domestication of another species. The place or places of the first...

  5. Genetic components of companion animal behavior

    Contributor(s):: Jones, Paul, McCune, Sandra, Freund, Lisa S., Esposito, Layla, Gee, Nancy R., McCardle, Peggy

  6. Determining the antiquity of dog origins: canine domestication as a model for the consilience between molecular genetics and archaeology

    Contributor(s):: Michelle Jeanette Raisor

    Archaeologists have favored a date of 14,000-15,000 years before present (BP) for canine domestication. However, recent studies of mutations in the mitochondrial DNA sequence by molecular geneticists have implied that dogs were domesticated over 100,000 years ago, which has challenged traditional...

  7. The Dog, the Scientist's best friend: Per Jensen at TEDxNorrkoping

    Contributor(s):: Per Jensen

    This talk deals with the evolution and development of the dog and the basic aspects of dog behavior and its connection to genetics and comparison with human behaviour. A dog can learn to count, and to distinguish verbs from adjectives. It is clear that dogs understand humans much better than has...

  8. Family Dog Project: history and future of the ethological approach to human-dog interaction

    Contributor(s):: Abdai, J., Miklosi, A.

    Dogs occupy a specific niche in the human social environment. Some authors argued that dogs' social competence show functional similarities in their components (e.g. attachment, rule following) to that of humans due to their long history living in anthropogenic environment if proper socialisation...

  9. Gene-edited 'micropigs' to be sold as pets at Chinese institute

    Contributor(s):: Cyranoski, D.

  10. Overview and critique of stages and periods in canine development

    Contributor(s):: Fox, M. W.

  19. Genetic diversity of Toxoplasma gondii in animals and humans

    Contributor(s):: L. David Sibley, Asis Khan, James W. Ajioka, Benjamin M. Rosenthal

    Toxoplasma gondii is one of the most widespread parasites of domestic, wild, and companion animals, and it also commonly infects humans. Toxoplasma gondii has a complex life cycle. Sexual development occurs only in the cat gut, while asexual replication occurs in many vertebrate hosts. These...

  20. Comparison of adoption agency breed identification and DNA breed identification of dogs

    Contributor(s):: Voith, V. L., Ingram, E., Mitsouras, K., Irizarry, K.

    Governmental and other agencies may require dog caregivers (owners) to provide breed identification of their dogs. This study compares breed identification by adoption agencies with identification by DNA analysis in 20 dogs of unknown parentage. Of the 20 dogs who had been adopted from 17...
