A new study by researchers at the University of California, San Diego examined the genetic ages of dogs, specifically focusing on an age-related change to DNA called methylation. In humans, methylation occurs more steadily than it does in dogs, and using this method to judge the genetic age of dogs reveals something very special about man’s best friend.
