Wolves are inherently more tolerant than dogs are, according to new research that helps explain why wolves are so good at cooperating with each other.
The findings, published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, runs counter to the idea that domestication has made dogs more social and tolerant. Since the ancestor of dogs and wolves likely already had those skills, other factors, such as losing fear of humans and readily accepting us as social partners, could explain why dogs make better pets than wolves.
"Wolves cooperate more (than dogs do) in terms of breeding, defending territories and probably hunting," lead author Friederike Range told Discovery News. "Dogs are scavengers."
