Protein expression and genetic variability of canine Can f 1 in golden and Labrador retriever service dogs
| Contributor(s):: Breitenbuecher, C., Belanger, J. M., Levy, K., Mundell, P., Fates, V., Gershony, L., Famula, T. R., Oberbauer, A. M.
Background: Valued for trainability in diverse tasks, dogs are the primary service animal used to assist individuals with disabilities. Despite their utility, many people in need of service dogs are sensitive to the primary dog allergen, Can f 1, encoded by the Lipocalin 1 gene (LCN1). Several...

Canine olfactory receptor gene polymorphism and its relation to odor detection performance by sniffer dogs
| Contributor(s):: Lesniak, A., Walczak, M., Jezierski, T., Sacharczuk, M., Gawkowski, M., Jaszczak, K.
The outstanding sensitivity of the canine olfactory system has been acknowledged by using sniffer dogs in military and civilian service for detection of a variety of odors. It is hypothesized that the canine olfactory ability is determined by polymorphisms in olfactory receptor (OR) genes. We...

Mother-offspring bonding in farmed red deer: accuracy of visual observation verified by DNA analysis
| Contributor(s):: Vankova, D., Bartos, L., Cizova-Schroffelova, D., Nespor, F., Jandurova, O.
The accuracy of a maternity assessment based on visual observation was tested during the post parturient phase in farmed red deer in Czech Republic [date not given]. The mother of the calf was determined using visual observation of the hind's peri-parturient and early maternal behaviour during...
An approach to canine behavioural genetics employing guide dogs for the blind
| Contributor(s):: Takeuchi, Y., Hashizume, C., Arata, S., Inoue-Murayama, M., Maki, T., Hart, B. L., Mori, Y.
The purpose of this study was to attempt to find related variables of the canine genome with behavioural traits of dogs maintained and tested in a guide dog facility which provided a relatively uniform environment. The study involved 81 Labrador Retrievers that were being trained as guide dogs....
