Check out our publication on how the behavioural component of the domestication syndrome has been temporally decoupled in dogs. A tireless team effort and constructive comments from reviewers made this paper a reality

Data from more than 76,000 dogs shows that key behaviors in domestication syndrome are correlated in complex ways, with ancient dog breeds showing stronger link between prosociality/playfulness & reactivity/aggression, indicative of higher wolf admixture
