Any dog lover will tell you dogs are special creatures. But until recently, science has not determined what exactly makes dogs so unique. Clive Wynne, a pioneer in canine science, led the way to finally prove, unequivocally, the answer dog lovers have known for years: dog is love. This conclusion emerged through ground-breaking experiments comparing domestic dogs with the wolves at Wolf Park. In this seminar, Clive Wynne will discuss the latest discoveries in canine science, ranging from ethological (behavioral) studies to modern methods including brain scans, hormonal analyses, and genetic tests. Wynne will also explore why two canid cousins, wolves and dogs, though so closely related they are no longer considered distinct species, are distinctly different across many realms. Seminar participants will gain an appreciation of how a dog’s heart (capacity for affection) rather than its smarts made it so successful in a human-dominated world. Finally, attendees will discover how a scientific approach to behavior can help humans and dogs live more successful lives together.
