Symposium on Aging, Cognition and Behavior in Companion Animals
The 1st Canine Cognition and Aging Conference was held in 1995 with the goal of allowing researchers to discuss ideas related to the development of a canine model of cognition and aging.

About the event
The growth of researchers to discuss ideas related to the development of a canine model of cognition and aging in both scope and attendance, reects a broadening scientic understanding of the utility of the dog as a model of human cognitive aging, and an increase in interest in developing
therapeutics targeting companion animal behavior.
This year's conference will focus on both of these underlying themes: the dog as a model for
human age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and osteoarthritis, and on the
development of interventions for treatment of age-associated disorders and behavior problems in
