Darwin's Dogs

As a member of IAABC I have been asked to forward this message to interested dog owners. Please help to facilitate the need for research in this important field of dog behavior studies. Hopefully we will learn something about our Havanese .

" Darwin’s Dogs is an exciting new research project that is collaborating with the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and dog owners nation-wide to understand how genetics influences behavior. Through a series of short surveys on the Darwin’s Dogs website, we ask dog owners to tell us about their dog’s personality and behavior. After filling out the surveys, owners will receive an easy-to-use kit to collect a small saliva sample we can use for DNA analysis (DNA kits available only within the US at this time). There is no cost to participate, and any dog can join in - purebred or pure mutt. By understanding out how genetic changes can lead to behavior differences — even for normal behaviors — we will have new insight into traits and psychiatric diseases shared between dogs and people. By bringing together geneticists, animal behavior specialists and pet owners, Darwin’s Dogs is looking for new ways to help both people and their best friends. To succeed, though, we need thousands of dogs to sign up! Please help us get as much data as we can by visiting Darwin's Dogs | Following the pawprints of evolution

I signed up and did all the surveys for my older dog. I haven't added Raffy who is only 4 months old. The answers to many questions may be skewed by the fact that he is a puppy. Or is that useful information as well?

thanks, I can't tell if a puppy at 4 mos. would be pertinent? I can't participate as it is U.S. residents only.

I registered and completed the surveys for Porter, Becca and Leo. I didn't include the new puppy as we are still getting to know him and at 11 weeks he is still very young.
