We will examine the ancestors of modern domestic dogs, including wolves, coyotes, dingoes, jackals, and Asiatic wild dogs. Foxes are not closely related to dogs. How did these wild ancestors become tame and adapt to domestication? How did their behavior and reproduction change?

Roy Horst has taught animal physiology and ecology at SUNY Potsdam. He has presented several SOAR courses: Domestic Cats, Wildlife of the North Country, and Bats. He also has done extensive field work on wildlife in the Caribbean and in Hawaii.
