(In-Person Event) Beyond the Breed: Exploring Dog DNA

Monday, June 17 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 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 Revel Parties” takes hold, the need for a general understanding of dog evolution and genetics grows. In order for owners to fully understand how their small mixed breed dog could possibly have German Shepherd in its DNA, owners need a basic understanding of canine genetics. This program will provide the skills needed to identify dog breeds based on their phenotypic characteristics, give background information in canine evolution, and provide a basic understanding of canine genetics.

Presented by CT Humane Society. The Connecticut Humane Society is the leading resource in the state for companion animal welfare, enriching the lives of families and communities through adoption services, medical care, education, and prevention of cruelty.

Program sponsored by the Friends of the Avon Library.

Registration is required for this in-person event.
