We help advance canine science.


How Can Canine Science Deepen Our Understanding of Dogs?

At Dogs and Science, canine science is our heartbeat and driving force. We continuously strive to advance this research field and help develop a deeper understanding of dogs by undertaking rigorous research, providing science-related services, and in the future, offering the Dogs and Science Research Award and research funding.


What are the main benefits?

Collaborative Studies

We collaborate with international researchers on canine behaviour, cognition, welfare, and emotions.

Expert Support

We provide comprehensive support for researchers throughout the scientific process.

Advanced Tools

We use methodologies like DogFACS to measure & analyze dog behaviour accurately.

Our research

Our original studies, often conducted in collaboration with international researchers, focus on critical areas like canine behaviour, cognition, welfare, and emotions. Our projects are meticulously designed to contribute to a comprehensive knowledge base, enhancing the scientific communities understanding of dogs. Past and ongoing projects have revealed fascinating insights into how dogs think, feel, and respond to their environment.

Our commitment
to science communication

Are you interested in discovering how scientific research can be transformed into knowledge that everyone can understand and use?

We are dedicated to making canine science accessible to the wider society. Recognizing the importance of effective science communication, we have organized several events, including hands-on workshops with science communication experts, to empower colleagues with skills to share their research in engaging ways.

Our vision includes a future where every researcher feels equipped to effectively communicate their discoveries, bridging the gap between science and society.

See how we can help you improve your science communication skills.
