Dogs affiliated with their cooperative character, "The Wolf Inside," a study about babies raised by people, suggests
But during domestication, those who were submissive to humans were selected for breeding, which makes them the best of today.

Gray wolves, at Wolf's Science Center in Vienna, were as good as dogs, working with their coaches to drag a food tray to each one, taking one end of the rope.
But, unlike dogs in the study, they also wanted to try their own tactics – for example, the theft of the rope from the coach.
- A new story for domestication of dogs

- A new understanding of the history of dogs and humans
- "It shows that, although wolves are inclined to initiate behavior and lead, dogs often wait and see what a partner man does and adheres to this behavior."
About 30,000 years ago, wolves moved to the edge of human camps to get rid of the remnants.
The next "tamed" process of taming and selective breeding then slowly began to change its behavior and genes, and they eventually turned into dogs that we know today.
