Are dogs domesticated wolves?
My friend says there not and my dog trainer said they were who's right (me)
No, but all dogs came from the wolf. That's why all dogs have wolf DNA.
No. The two are both different.
Dog trainers know WAY more about dogs.
Though a wolf CAN be domesticated, dogs and wolves are different. One of my boyfriends coworkers has a pet wolf. He is instinctively aggressive though. I keep my distance.
Not quite, they have evolved from wolves. Through a selection process of trial and error and crossbreeding they retained certain traits and improved others. That's one of the reasons behind the different breeds.
Long ago 'cavemen' used caught and raised wolf pups to help hunt and protect. Over time, those animals have evolved today into what we call dogs.
Modern dogs are not domesticated wolves but the domestic dog originated from wild wolves who were taken in by human beings.
Dogs are descended from wolves, but they are a separate species.
