Canine Cloning

The way I understand it, cloning will give you back the same PUP that will grow up to be the same adult dog IF you replicate the original dog's upbringing and life experiences 100% spot on, so NO, you will not get the exact same dog ever again. You'll get the same "mold" that you will raise to basically be what your original dog [u]would've been[/u] had it had a different life. The reasoning behind cloning excellent working dogs is that if raised and trained the same way the working abilities will have a greater chance of being replicated than investing the time and effort into training a dog which hasn't been proven. I'm not saying I agree with the idea, it's just how I understand it.

      • Those people will do anything... :roll: What crnosrce1 says seems spot on, but the extra info. provided here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloning is interesting.
