  • Accuracy of genotype imputation in Labrador Retrievers 

    Friedrich J; Antolin R; Edwards SM; Sanchez-Molano E; Haskell MJ; Hickey JM; Wiener P (2018)
    The dog is a valuable model species for the genetic analysis of complex traits, and the use of genotype imputation in dogs will be an important tool for future studies. It is of particular interest to analyse the effect ...
  • Genetic characterization of dog personality traits 

    Ilska-Warner J; Haskell MJ; Blott SC; Sanchez-Molano E; Polgar Z; Lofgren SE; Clements DN; Wiener P (2017)
    Personality or individual consistency in behavioural responsiveness to stimuli and situations, is recognized in a wide range of animal species, including dogs. These traits are important for determining how well a dog fits ...
  • Genomic data illuminates demography, genetic structure and selection of a popular dog breed 

    Wiener P; Sanchez-Molano E; Clements DN; Woolliams JA; Haskell MJ; Blott SC (2017)
    Background Genomic methods have proved to be important tools in the analysis of genetic diversity across the range of species and can be used to reveal processes underlying both short- and long-term evolutionary change. ...

    Gutierrez-Gil B; Ball N; Burton D; Haskell MJ; Williams JL; Wiener P (2008)
  • The interaction between behavioural traits and demographic and management factors in German Shepherd dogs 

    Friedrich J; Arvelius P; Strandberg E; Polgar Z; Wiener P; Haskell MJ (2018)
    As companion animals, a dog’s lifestyle is mainly determined by its owner. Discrepancies between the dog’s preferences and the owner’s lifestyle might lead to the occurrence of unwanted behaviours that affect both the ...
  • Management and personality in Labrador Retriever dogs 

    Lofgren SE; Wiener P; Blott SC; Sanchez-Molano E; Woolliams JA; Clements DN; Haskell MJ (2014)
    Canine personality is of keen interest to dog owners and researchers alike. The regular human contact with them makes dogs an ideal species to use in the investigation of animal personality. This study specifically focused ...
  • Use of questionnaire-based data to assess dog personality 

    Wiener P; Haskell MJ (2016)
    The study of dog personality is of general academic interest and also has applications for the management of both working dogs and pets. However, acquiring direct behavioral assessments of large numbers of animals is ...
