#SPARCS2014 is Now! You Can Be Here Too!

Get your James Hutson Dog: Origins wares here: society6
Hi World!

It's not often that anyone, anywhere in the world can just join a conference for free. Comic Con is not even that cool. But that's just how dogs roll!

SPARCS, the canine science conference we've been talking about for months, is taking place now, June 20-22, and you can watch the live broadcast for FREE just by going to.

The conference begins at 8:30 AM Eastern Time on Friday, June 20th, and speaker talk times and titles are listed here. Stay with us until 7:00 PM Easter Time on Sunday, June 22.


Last year, over 20,000 people joined the first SPARCS conference from around the world. This year, we're expecting to top those numbers! Our conference reminder post was shared 248 times and reached over 14,000 people in less than 24 hours.  

Do You Believe in Dog? is hosting this year's SPARCS conference, June 20-22, featuring daily themes of Aggression & Conflict, Personality & Temperament and finally Science in Training. Hear from some of the best minds in canine science from the comforts of your own home whether that be the bathroom, couch, kitchen table, we don't care. Your choice.


Access the Free, Live Broadcast between Friday, June 20 and Sunday, June 22 below!
In preparing for the conference, we discovered that not everyone realized that you can access the conference in real time for free. 


No login, just free access by going to the website. It seems too easy, but it's true!

Through the 3-day event, follow the presentations, and join in using #SPARCS2014. You can share your comments and questions on Twitter using: #SPARCS2014 Q


Part of our role as hosts is bringing the online audience into the conversation, so get on Twitter and join in!

Canine Science For All!
