7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Glencoe Public Library

Event Details

Scientists who study the co-evolution of humans and dogs have found that humans would not have survived as a species without canines. No other species on earth have co-evolved to the same extent. Jennifer Bishop-Jenkins will present a 90-minute program on the science behind our relationship with dogs, what was revealed about dogs when their genome was mapped, how dog breeds emerged, and how we can use the newest scientific findings to better communicate with them. Ms. Bishop-Jenkins is an international certified master groomer and the owner of Love Fur Dogs in Glencoe. She is a retired high school and college teacher with a long side-career of showing and breeding dogs.
