    I saw a post come up on FB about a study from the Univ of Arizona, the C-BARQ, that sounds a lot like this study but I don’t think they used individual dogs’ DNA. (I didn’t read all the details.) Just thought it was interesting that there’s another study!

    Science Magazine ran an article about the study this week, which comes out of the Arizona Canine Cognition Center. The manuscript is publicly available to read, too.

    That’s correct — the study looks at C-BARQ personality surveys collected from many purebred dogs and corresponding genetic data averaged from different dogs (while still accounting for within-breed variation) rather than at genetic and personality data from the same individuals.

    The results will be interesting to compare with our research in the context of some key differences, namely: different surveys to assess personality, including mixed and purebred dogs, using individual-level data, and considering breed ancestry.
