Example text

However, a long history of domestication behaviorally segregates dogs from wolves, and one must take care not to overly generalize between the two canids in terms of their respective motivations and behavior patterns. E FFECTS OF D OMESTICATION Although it is doubtful that early humans consciously deliberated upon the reproductive activities of their captive dogs, there certainly existed many unconscious selection pressures. Dogs of special interest or usefulness were probably more carefully managed, fed, and protected than others, thereby enhancing their chances of survival and reproduction.

It should be noted that not all domestic dogs are equally inclined to bark. The absence of barking in dogs belonging to native American Indians was frequently noted in the journals of early observers (Young and Goldman, 1944/1964). In fact, Spanish explorers of the New World referred to native dogs as perros mudos (mute dogs). These native dogs, however, gradually acquired the habit of barking, presumably as the result of close daily contact with their more vocal European-bred counterparts. This observation suggests that the tendency to bark may be socially facilitated or learned.

Dogs are typically much more friendly toward strangers than are wolves, and appear to treat outsiders as members of an extended pack-family, whereas wolves become progressively xenophobic and intolerant of strangers not belonging to their immediate pack. An important influence of domestication on the behavior of dogs is the attenuation of predatory instincts. Wolves possess a set of innate predatory behavior patterns that are readily evoked by an adequate stimulus. When presented with a prey animal, wolves respond in a species-typical manner by emitting an appropriate series of behavioral sequences, ranging from crouching, stalking, worrying, charging, pouncing, biting, and shaking.
