Previous studies have suggested canine domestication occurred in locations such as the Middle East, Europe or southern China, the first dogs may have actually emerged in Central Asia, according to a new study out of Adam Boyko Laboratory at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. “There’s a lot of debate about when it happened and why it happened,” says study author Adam Boyko. “I think the first thing you need to answer is where it happened,” he told The Christian Science Monitor in an interview. The paper, published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, focuses on village dogs, populations of dogs that live around human communities but not in people’s homes.
