The first 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. Our next meeting will take place from August 20th to August 22nd, 2017 and will be held at the Queen’s Landing Hotel at picturesque Niagara-on–the-Lake, Ontario, Canada.
