Just when you thought you knew everything you needed to know about genetics, here comes epigenetics! Current research shows us that there are many more factors that play a role in the physiology and behavior of puppies than just DNA from their parents. Find out what else can be involved in creating a puppy who is confident, resilient, and a bold learner.
