I have many peer reviewed publications on the website. I tend to read the abstract, then read the conclusion, then search for meat of the study in the details. These publications make assertions that are accurate under scientific rigor, but are often limited by the size of the study population. This is why citizen science with canines is so exciting. It allows for much improved population sizes with a great deal of variation.
The paper linked above is an excellent example of why it is important to read carefully, paying attention to how the authors reached their conclusions, before making assumptions. Happy reading!
