Wondering, are their multiple genes that play a roll in influencing the same behavior? To what degree does genetics affect “behavior modification’s success or failure when applied ?

Read the study on the labs, but it is honestly a bit over my head. So not sure I understood it correctly.

Curious, as to whether their obesity, is the direct result of them never feeling satiated. Do this labs for example, become obese even if the amount of food they receive is controlled to prevent that.

I’m thinking ac hungry dog of any breed will tend to work hard for food.

Would love to know more about genes that influence all kinds of behavior.
