Aims and scope

Since the foundation of the Family Dog Project by Vilmos Csányi, Ádám Miklósi, József Topál and Antal Dóka in 1994, our biggest supporters have been the owners, who participated in our research on a voluntary basis with their dogs.

One the other hand, the results, the scientific papers themselves may have taken years to publish, are written in a foreign language, riddled with scientific terms, therefore it could happen that the owners did not find out about the results of the study they participated in.

To change this -in frame of the Celebration of Hungarian Science series- in 2013 we decided to organize a yearly conference where participants can listen to the results of the current year’s publications related to dog behaviour. Our goal is to present these science-related topics in a comprehensible form to non-experts.

We intend to show our gratitude with this event toward the dog owners who support us every day with volunteering with their dogs to participate in our tests.


This year, we take the next step and make our results accessible in this way to an even broader audience! The talks will be presented twice, with English and Hungarian sessions running in two rooms in parallel.
