Recast: Good dog, bad dog – is it all in the genes?

In this episode we revisit the nature vs. nurture debate in one of humanity's closest companions – Dogs! Why do they do the things they do? Are their behaviours hardwired into their DNA? Tune in and listen to Dr Juliane Friedrich, Dr Pamela Wiener and Dr Marie Haskell as they discuss complex genetic behaviour traits in German shepherd dogs and how their research has shaped the way they view their own pets behaviour.

 

In this episode we explore the Heredity paper: “Genetic dissection of complex behaviour traits in German Shepherd dogs” https://www.nature.com/articles/s41437-019-0275-2
