What do (and don't) we know about how genetics affects canine aggression and other parts of dog personality? In this webinar, Jessica Hekman will take a deep dive into her own area of research - how genetics affects personality in dogs, with an emphasis on aggression. How much of canine personality is due to genetics and how much to environment? How do researchers track down genes related to personality? Have any such genes yet been found? Can we expect a genetic test for dog aggression any time soon? In this webinar, Jessica will particularly address examples from human literature about the genetic influences of aggression. There will be something for everyone, so come listen and ask questions, whether you are just starting to wrap your head around genetics or whether you're a confirmed science geek!
The webinar will be recorded and available one day following the event if you cannot attend live.
