Beyond the Breed: Exploring Dog DNA Zoom

April 12, 2023 @ 7:00 pm


Are you curious about the genetic make-up of your furry family members? Dog owners are becoming increasingly interested 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 is growing. In order for owners to fully understand how their small mixed breed dog could possibly have German Shepherd in its DNA, they need a basic understanding of canine genetics. This Connecticut Humane Society 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. This program is FREE and open to the public, April 12 at 7 p.m. on Zoom. Call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560 or visit https://www.youressexlibrary.org/ for more information and to register.
