Our goal is to find the genetic loci associated with key behavioral traits of military and service dogs.  While decades of selective breeding practices have shaped the canine genome, we now look to genetics to guide our selection of dogs for specific training and career paths.

We have a unique opportunity today to apply cutting-edge technology to identify the genes driving dog behavior.  This is a first critical step.  With the key genetic factors found, we can strategically select better working dogs, which saves time, energy and dollars.  Rarely do we have the opportunity to make such an impact on BOTH our national security and our disabled Americans.  Please consider supporting the effort.  Funding for The Working Dog Project has been provided by the Theriogenology Foundation.
