Behavior Research Program Area

The AKC Canine Health Foundation supports research that enhances our understanding of the basic behavioral and social processes that influence the well-being of dogs and their owners. Within the broad context of canine behavior, research can include studies with a primary focus on epidemiology, incidence and impact of behavioral dysfunction, clinical interventions or treatment studies for behavioral dysfunction, or development of new methods for identifying and assessing behavioral dysfunction. The health and well-being, fitness and behavioral selection of working dogs are important areas of research to the Foundation.
