Dog behaviour

Dog behaviour

Auteure: Ann-sofie Sundman

Nombre de pages: 49

Dogs, Canis familiaris, share the lives of humans all over the world. That dogs, and the behavior of dogs, are of interest to many is therefore no surprise. In this thesis, the main aim has been to identify factors that affect dogs’ behaviours. The dog, Canis familiaris, is our first domesticated animal. Since domestication, various types of dogs have developed through adaptation to an environment shared with humans and through our selective breeding, resulting in a unique variation in morphology and behaviour. Although there is an individual variation in the behaviour of dogs, there is also a difference between breeds. Moreover, selection during the last decades has split some breeds into divergent types. Labrador and golden retrievers are divided into a common type, for show and companionship, and a field type, for hunting. By comparing the breed types, we can study the effects of recent selection. In Paper I, we investigate differences in general behavioural traits between Labrador and golden retriever and between common and field type within the two breeds by using results from the standardized behaviour test Dog Mentality Assessment. There were differences between breeds...

Control of Canine Genetic Diseases

Auteure: George A. Padgett

Nombre de pages: 266

If you breed dogs for any reason, you must own this book. Genetic diseases are among the most serious hazards on the landscape of modern dog breeding and one of the most vexing challenges facing today's dog breeders. Is it appropriate to open the gene pool to unwanted conditions in the pursuit of physical perfection, or must breeding to the Standard take a back seat to producing healthy animals? In Control of Canine Genetic Diseases, renowned authority George A. Padgett, DVM, provides an expert road map to help dog breeders everywhere avoid the pitfalls they are almost destined to encounter. For anyone whose goal is to produce healthy, functional and beautiful dogs, this is the book they need. Dr. Padgett provides clear explanations of modes of inheritance, how to conduct and analyze test matings and how to lower the chances of producing affected animals. Numerous tables, diagrams and graphs further enhance the text to facilitate the breeder's understanding. A Howell Dog Book of Distinction

Genetics for Dog Breeders

Auteure: Roy Robinson

Nombre de pages: 280

The findings of a decade of further investigation into the genetics of dog breeding have been incorporated into this new edition of a classic source of information for breeders. Early chapters outline the basic principles of heredity, illustrated byexamples from the dog. Modern methods of animal improvement which can be called upon to further the aims of dog breeding are also discussed. The chapters on colour & coat variation, genetics of breeds, & abnormalities heve been extensively rewritten in the light of new findings. Many outstanding problems of breed genotypes have been resolved, but at the same time numerous genetic anomalies have been identified through greater genetic awareness & attempts to secure breeding data. The descriptive summaries of these abnormalities, substantially documented, make this book a useful reference source for the identification of known genetic anomalies.

Genetics and the Behavior of Domestic Animals

Genetics and the Behavior of Domestic Animals

Auteure: Kathryn Lord , Lorna Coppinger , Raymond Coppinger

Nombre de pages: 496

The domestic dog has many phenotypic and behavioral forms. In this chapter we describe five different kinds of dogs and how each has been derived. We trace the background village dog adapting to the age of agriculture, with the coincident transformation of human behavior to permanent settlement. Over centuries, this village dog has changed, adapting to its different geographies and to local agricultural activities. In tandem, people began sorting through the village populations for dogs with appropriate behaviors, and these eventually became the founding stock for breeding programs. In recent centuries, samples of these working and hunting breeds have been collected by kennel clubs, and sexually isolated, becoming at best historic representations of the working or hunting breeds. More commonly they are used as pets, or household dogs, sometimes with sport competitions in the show or agility ringl

The Dog and Its Genome

The Dog and Its Genome

Auteure: Elaine A. Ostrander , Urs Giger , Lindblad-toh Kerstin

Nombre de pages: 606

Dogs of different breeds can range remarkably in size, shape, and behavior, and yet they all carry essentially the same genome, making them a particularly fascinating model for genome plasticity. The recent release of the complete sequence of the dog genome provides an exciting new context in which to consider such variation. Twentyfive chapters written by experts in the field include various aspects of morphological and behavioral variation in dogs, their origins and domestication, and their unique value as a model system for many common but complex human diseases such as diabetes and cancer.

Pawsitive selection

Pawsitive selection

Auteure: Mia Persson

Nombre de pages: 35

Through domestication and recent selection, dogs have evolved a unique set of communicative skills to attract and redirect human attention. These social skills have not been seen to the same extent in socialised wolves and are therefore believed to have a significant genetic basis. The process of domestication and breed formation has also had effects on the structure of the dog genome that are favourable for genetic mapping. With a high amount of linkage and long haplotype blocks, fewer genetic markers are needed to find gene-trait associations in dogs than in humans. Dogs serve as an important research model for us since humans and dogs share several diseases, psychiatric disorders and behavioural traits. In Paper I, I recorded human-directed social behaviours during a two-minute unsolvable problem task in 500 laboratory beagles. The dogs were living at a breeding facility and had been bred, kept and handled under standardised conditions. Behaviours related to task solving and human-directed contact seeking were separated in a principal component analysis, indicating that the behavioural test can be used to study dog-human interaction. Narrowsense heritability (h2) of the largest ...

Un monde de chiens

Un monde de chiens

Auteure: François Y. Doré

Nombre de pages: 259

Ils sont un milliard dans le monde. Tous issus d’un ancêtre commun avec le loup. Pourtant, d’une race à l’autre, ils ne se ressemblent pas vraiment. Ils sont tantôt de grands renifleurs, tantôt de robustes bêtes, tantôt d’incomparables coureurs. Certains chiens sont imbattables pour détecter la moindre trace de stupéfiants, d’autres savent guider les personnes non-voyantes avec une exemplaire bienveillance, et d’autres encore font de redoutables gardiens. Mais comment expliquer l’extraordinaire complicité qu’ils ont établie avec nous? Comment parviennent-ils à être si attentifs à nos expressions, nos gestes, nos émotions? Inversement, savons-nous bien interpréter leurs regards, leurs postures et leurs vocalisations? Que connaissons-nous de leurs habiletés cognitives si caractéristiques? Ces 20 dernières années, les études en psychologie comparée et en éthologie ont connu un essor sans précédent. Ces recherches nous éclairent sur l’intelligence très particulière des chiens et sur la manière dont nos fidèles compagnons perçoivent le monde qu’ils partagent avec nous depuis plus de 15000 ans.

Once a Wolf

Once a Wolf

Auteure: Bryan Sykes

The author of Seven Daughters of Eve returns with a lively account of how all dogs are descended from a mere handful of wolves. How did wolves evolve into dogs? When did this happen, and what role did humans play? Oxford geneticist Bryan Sykes used the full array of modern technology to explore the canine genetic journey that likely began when a human child decided to adopt a wolf cub thousands of years ago. In the process, he discovered that only a handful of genes have created the huge range of shapes, sizes, and colors in modern dogs. Providing scientific insight into these adaptive stages, Sykes focuses attention on our own species, and how our own evolution from (perhaps equally aggressive) primates was enhanced by this most unlikely ally. Whether examining our obsession with canine purity, or delving into the prehistoric past to answer the most fundamental question of all, “Why do we love our dog so much?,” Once a Wolf is an engaging work no dog lover or ancestry aficionado should be without.

Auteure: Donna Haraway

Nombre de pages: 509

" Il y a maintenant presque huit ans, je me suis retrouvée de façon inattendue éperdument amoureuse d'une chienne rouge piment que j'ai appelée Cayenne. " C'est en partant des gestes les plus ordinaires du quotidien et non pas de grands principes que Donna Haraway nous invite à penser notre relation aux espèces compagnes. Ces espèces avec lesquelles nous " partageons le pain ", depuis les micro-organismes qui nous peuplent jusqu'aux animaux de compagnie. Cet enchevêtrement nous conduit auprès de bouledogues français à Paris, à des projets concernant les prisonniers du Midwest, à des analyses coûts-bénéfices dans la culture marchande autour des chiens, à des souris de laboratoire et des projets de recherche en génétique, sur des terrains de baseball et d'agility, auprès de baleines munies de caméras au large de l'Alaska, sur des sites industriels d'élevage de poulets, etc. Il s'agit ici non pas de domestication, de contrôle ou de rachat de la dette mais de contact. Quelle est la valeur ajoutée du contact ? Que nous apprennent à sentir et à faire les " zones de contact " ? Loin de tout retour romantique à une rencontre sauvage, dénuée d'intérêts et de...
