<h5>Introduction: the Canine Behavioral Genetics Project (CBGP)</h5> Behavioral problems account for the death, relinquishment, or the end of breeding careers of more dogs than does any other set of problems ( Miller et al., 1996; Patronek et al., 1996; Salman et al., 1998, 2000 ; Scarlett et al., 1999 ; Shore et al, 2003; Mondelli et al., 2004; Shore, 2005 ). Whereas many behavioral complaints involve management-related issues or dog-human temperament mismatches, the behavioral concerns that are most interesting to scientists and breeders alike are those with familial patterns. A number of conditions have been identified as running in family lines of a number of breeds including, but not restricted to, generalized anxiety/fear, noise phobia, impulse/control aggression, conspecific aggression, predatory aggression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder ( Overall, 1994; Overall and Dunham, 2002; Overall, 2005 ). Most of these conditions appear sometime between one and two years of age, the social maturity period, during which neural systems are undergoing extensive developmental changes. The potential benefit of genetic counseling is clear, and the potential to make dogs “safer” and happier is substantial. Understanding the genetic bases of behavioral problems will lead to more humane treatment of dogs, fewer public health risks,
