MARLBORO- Often, the only exposure to wild canines is through television, books or the Internet. For a species with so many dimensions of vocalizations, body language, and behavior, no media can convey these fully. The canine with humans every day, “canis lupus familiaris” or the domestic dog, is a point of reference to wild wolves. In reality, dogs and wolves can be quite different.

Join the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum on Saturday, July 19, at 4 pm, for an exploration of canine behavior with Adam Katrick of Wolfgard. Discover the similarities and differences between wolves and their domestic cousins. Participants will also discuss human perceptions of canine behavior, and how canines have fit into the study of humans.
