PETtalk: Beyond the Breed: Exploring Dog DNA
September 10 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Dog owners are becoming increasingly interested in the genetic make-up of their furry family members. As the popularity of Canine DNA testing grows and the trend of “Breed Reveal Parties” takes hold, the need for a general understanding of dog evolution and genetics grows. This program will provide dog owners with a basic understanding of canine genetics. Owners will leave with the skills needed to begin identifying dog breeds based on their phenotypic characteristics, a background in canine evolution, and a basic understanding of canine genetics. Attendees who have already tested or are planning to test their dog’s DNA are encouraged to submit a photo of their furry friend to firstname.lastname@example.org, for a chance to be featured in the dog breed identification portion of this program. If you have previously had your dog’s DNA tested, please also submit their results.
6:00pm – Guided tour of the Connecticut Humane Society, please arrive by 6pm if you wish to go on the tour.
