**The dog behavior & dog training community needs your help! In order to advance our knowledge of behavior & genetics, research is being done everyday. You, play a very important role in that research. Here are a few links of interest to help you get started.
Canine Behavioral Genetics
-Join Theo & I in exploring the relationship between genes and behavior, both normal & abnormal in dogs.
Canine Genome Project-The primary goals of the canine genome project are to map and identify genetic markers linked to inherited diseases, and to use this information to improve the overall health of the canine population and to further the understanding of the many complex diseases that arise in the canine genome. Canine Thyroid Aggression Study
-Study focuses on dogs who show aggression towards their owners at least 4x a week & has a thyroid condition. (Note, if you are seeing this, and have not had your dog's thyroid & full blood workup, please seek your veterinarian).
