Exploring the Human-Dog Relationship through Canine Cartoons

Join us for a webinar that looks at the relationship between dogs and humans from the perspective of animal scientists and animal training professionals. We’ll look at famous cartoon dogs from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum’s latest exhibition The Dog Show: Two Centuries of Canine Cartoons and talk about how popular culture has shaped societal views of dogs and the roles that we see them play today. You’ll even see some dogs in action!

FREE and open to all. Registration required.
