Loving dogs in your DNA: Scientists see if a pooch property is in the built-in genetic code, study finds
- Studying twins is found the presence of a dog is influenced by individual genetics
- The same twin is more likely to agree with dog ownership than the unambiguous pairs
- Scientists say it is impossible to say which gene is involved in preference
Being a husband is not a choice, it is in your DNA.
This discovery from a team of researchers in Sweden and England gave light to how best human friend came and found that the owner of the dog could be genetic.
Study of twins studied that having a dog is influenced by individual genes and can be inherited.
It is impossible to tell which genes are involved in the study but similarly agree to more than unlike pairs if they have a pet domesticated.

The best human friend is with us for at least 15,000 years, but why we have built such a unity with them so much dispute. Scientists have thought that the love of dogs may be on the DNA of pet owners
Previous research found that if we have a pet as a kid we are more likely to have animals and Own a pet for adulthood.
it is not clear whether the genetic differences between families contribute to this association.
The author of professor Professor Tove Fall, of Uppsala University, says: & # 39; We are surprised to see that a person's genetic make-up looks a big influence on whether they have a dog. there are major implications for many different fields related to the understanding of human-person engagement throughout history and in modern times.
# While dogs and other pets are common household members around the world, little is known about how this affects our daily life and health.
& # 39; Perhaps some people have a higher natural tendency to care for a pet than the other. & # 39;
Researchers studied the heritability of dog ownership using information from 35,035 twin pairs from the Swedish Twin Registry.
This compares the genetic make-up of the twins to determine if dog ownership has a portion of the herk.
their entire genome while unequal twins on average are only half the genetic variation.
They use it to determine how much a combination of twins can be used as a gauge if it is a genetic preference.
Their findings support the view that genetics actually has a major role in choosing a dog's possession.
& # 39; The relationship between humans and dogs is the longest of all pets.
& # 39; But the source and history of perhaps our most iconic animal companion remains a puzzle, and a subject of many ongoing scientific debates.
