The Canine Science Conference was established in 2017 to support canid scientists on the North American continent and beyond. This led to the creation of the Canine Science Society, which strives to create community and foster collaborations in our field. We welcome canine professionals from diverse backgrounds – from dog trainers to geneticists and more. Click below to see what we're about.
