What we do

Welcome to the Dog Science Group.

We are an informal bunch of like-minded enthusiasts keen to learn more about the dogs we love. The aim of this website is to put dog people together with professional scientists conducting studies to improve our understanding of the health and behaviour of modern, 21st Century dogs.

If you would like to join in, and become one of a growing community of Dog Citizen Scientists, take a look at the list of current projects to see if there are any you would like to help with. You can sign up to receive further information about the studies going on, right now, and to be the first to hear about new projects as they are launched.  Don’t worry if you don’t live with a dog at the moment as some studies are open to all dog lovers and not just those who are current owners.

Together, we can help all dogs, and the people they hang out with, to enjoy happier, healthier lives. It would be great to have you on board.
