Dogs and the science behind dogs

Dogs and the science behind dogs

Playing tracks by


Part 1 of a 2 part series on dogs.

This week we discuss:
- how dogs probably domesticated themselves
- the evolutionary process that produced dogs from gray wolves
- the silver fox domestication experiment (where a Russian scientist bred silver foxes so friendly they fought over human attention)
- the genetic basis of dog breeds and where they came from
- the scientific evidence explaining why Rottweilers, German Shepherds, and Pitbulls are not actually more aggressive than other breeds.

We also threw some banging tunes in there.
