    Really important to emphasize the importance of genetics on behavior! Super interesting how 1 gene can underlie some seemingly complex behaviors, whereas multiple genes can be responsible for affecting simple traits. It’s always genes*environment, but it seems like there’s too much emphasis on “it’s how you raise them” when it comes to the public’s understanding of dogs.
