Ancient wolf pup mummy in Yukon permafrost from 57,000 years ago

While water blasting at a wall of frozen mud in Yukon, Canada, a gold miner made an extraordinary discovery: a perfectly preserved wolf pup that had been locked in permafrost for 57,000 years. The remarkable condition of the pup, named Zhùr by the local Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in people, gave researchers a wealth of insights about her age, lifestyle, and relationship to modern wolves.

Living environment affects the microbiota and health of both dogs and their owners

In urban environments, allergic diseases are more common among dogs and their owners compared to those living in rural areas. Simultaneous allergic traits appear to be associated with the microbes found in the environment, but microbes relevant to health differ between dogs and humans.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/7cus0Y2BXGo View the source article

Study sets baseline for sleep patterns in healthy adult dogs

A new canine sleep study could serve as a baseline for research on chronic pain and cognitive dysfunction in dogs, potentially improving detection and treatment of these conditions.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/JC_WkHDAE3I View the source article

What's up, Skip? Kangaroos really can 'talk' to us, study finds

Animals that have never been domesticated, such as kangaroos, can intentionally communicate with humans, challenging the notion that this behavior is usually restricted to domesticated animals like dogs, horses or goats, a new study has found. View the source article

Training methods based on punishment compromise dog welfare, study finds

After aversive training, dogs had a lower behavioral state (higher stress and anxiety), a new study has found. If aversive methods were used in high proportions, that persisted even in other contexts.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/plants_animals/dogs/~4/OUws0QI-PBs View the source article

K9 chemistry: A safer way to train detection dogs

Trained dogs are better at detecting explosives and narcotics than any technological device scientists have invented. However, training dogs to detect hazardous substances can be inconvenient for the trainer and dangerous for the dog. Scientists are working to solve this problem with a material that can catch odors and safely release them over time. View the source article

What makes certain groups more vulnerable to COVID-19?

What makes the elderly and people with underlying conditions more vulnerable to COVID-19? According to a new study, clues can be found in the proteins involved in initiating infection, as the virus binds to host cells of different animals. Greater cellular oxidation with aging and sickness may explain why seniors and people with chronic illness get infected more often and more severely. View the source article

Big cats and small dogs: Solving the mystery of canine distemper in wild tigers

Canine distemper virus (CDV) causes a serious disease in domestic dogs, and also infects other carnivores, including threatened species like the Amur tiger. It is often assumed that domestic dogs are the primary source of CDV, but a new study found that other local wildlife was the primary source of CDV transmission to tigers instead.
