Why haven't we found a genetic test yet that will predict aggression in dogs? In this presentation Dr. Jessica will summarize then current approaches that have been taken to answering this problem and explain the pitfalls that researchers have encountered. Dr. Jessica will describe some specific findings in dogs and humans and put them in context to explain their relevance to our understanding of canine aggression in the real world. The webinar will also discuss the future directions of research in this area and give some hope for future results. Webinar Objectives List some approaches to finding a genetic test for aggression Explain why finding a genetic test for aggression is difficult and unlikely to happen soon Describe some specific mechanisms for the interaction of genetics and environment to influence aggression in dogs
