  1. Estimation of genetic parameters for behavior based on results of German Shepherd Dogs in Switzerland

    Contributor(s):: Meyer, Franziska, Schawalder, Peter, Gaillard, Claude, Dolf, Gaudenz

    The objective of this study was to estimate heritabilities and correlations of seven behavioral traits in German Shepherd Dogs in Switzerland as well as breeding values for this population. Data from 4855 animals having taken the standardized behavior test of the German Shepherd Dog Club of...

  2. Evolution of facial muscle anatomy in dogs

    Contributor(s):: Kaminski, J., Waller, B. M., Diogo, R., Hartstone-Rose, A., Burrows, A. M.

    Domestication shaped wolves into dogs and transformed both their behavior and their anatomy. Here we show that, in only 33,000 y, domestication transformed the facial muscle anatomy of dogs specifically for facial communication with humans. Based on dissections of dog and wolf heads, we show that...

  3. Behavior and personality analysis in cloned working dog candidates 복제 기능견 후보의 행동과 성격 분석

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Jin Choi

    Cloning specific individuals is the way to produce targeted animals. This makes newborns without surplus animals which should be adapted to new families afterwards or supported by institutions for whole life. Cloning excellent dogs had been started from this point. Many cloned dogs have been...

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

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

  5. "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

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. Genetic components of companion animal behavior

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

  9. 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...

  10. 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...

  11. 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...
