Beyond the Breed: Exploring Dog DNA - Virtual

Monday, January 25, 2021

Dog owners are becoming increasingly interested in the genetic make-up of their furry family members. As the popularity of Canine DNA testing grows and the trend of “Breed Reveal Parties” takes hold, the need for a general understanding of dog evolution and genetics grows. In order for owners to fully understand how their small mixed breed dog could possibly have German Shepherd in its DNA, they need a basic understanding of canine genetics. This program will provide the skills needed to identify dog breeds based on their phenotypic characteristics, give background information in canine evolution, and provide a basic understanding of canine genetics. Registration required if you want to attend the live event. A Zoom link will be sent to you prior to the program. If you are unable to attend the live event, this program will be recorded and will be available for viewing after January 27. Sponsored by the Connecticut Humane Society & The Friends of the Library.
