That's fascinating! I've always wondered how so much variety can come from the grey wolf. I can't believe it started out as a nice side-effect of humans breeding for lack of aggression!

Wow that was an amazing documentary, thanks for sharing!

I found the breeding program of the foxes most remarkable, also the insight of wolf puppies being raised in the house (they seemed so destructive!) and the fact that tame-ness lies within the genes, and the way they were raised.

I love that scientists take dogs and the study of dogs more seriously now, they've been disregarded at 'just some pets' for too long imho, also in regards to their intelligence.

Documentaries like these have inspired me to take the Behaviour and welfare module at University! :D
Dogs intelligence has been seriously underestimated by science. Infact so have loads of other animals!

Again, if anyone has a few hours to spare, and hasn't already seen the BBC's super smart animals documentary, definitely give it a watch! (looks at lots of animals not just dogs.)

oh i watched those...! that monkey is a genius and has a memory that goes way beyond what most humans can comprehend... animals just need more people to watch things like this to dissolve the notion that they are "just" animals and a mindless pet.

I know!! I couldn't even see the numbers within that space of time, and the chimp could remember all the numbers on screen perfectly.
