Dog Breeding Game

"Your goal is to breed a certain type of Border Collie puppy by selecting parents with the right traits. You will be trying to match certain coat colors, coat lengths, and ear types."

A game for kids to teach genetics...

Yay! Now, let's make a game for breeding specific characteristics in human children! You know, hair color, skin color!

What a fabulous educational tool!

On the upside; it might show children how wasteful dog breeding can be when its for looks.
