Does your dog love to fetch? It’s in the genes.

During the course of domestication, evolution worked on dog genes to adapt them for life with humans. Since then, humans have taken a greater hand. Even before genetics was established as a science, humans had been shaping the size, colour and temperament of their pets through selective breeding.

Science is still interested in the genetics of dogs, especially dog behaviour. A recent study carried out by Scottish scientists led to the discovery that the ability to fetch shows strong inheritance from parents to pups.
