Science on Tap is a science lecture series where you can sit back, enjoy a pint, and laugh while you learn. Listen to experts talk about the science in your neighborhood and around the world. You don’t have to be a science geek to have fun—all you need is a thirst for knowledge!

Most people raise dogs as if they are mini furry people, but they’re not. Canines are proud members of a different species with very different sensory systems and somewhat different social structure. At this Science on Tap, Dr. Rolan Tripp, a veterinarian and animal behaviorist, will talk about understanding how dogs think and why they behave the way they do. He will show how to measure and graph both wanted and unwanted canine personality traits, and will give behavioral science-based suggestions on how to increase mutual trust, respect, and bonding with your dog.
