2022 Embark Canine Health Summit

Welcome to the Embark Canine Health Summit, a free, virtual conference held April 27-28, 2022 for breeders, veterinarians, scientists, or anyone with an interest in the intersection of canine health, genetics, dog breeding, and veterinary medicine. Registration is free. All sessions will be recorded and available to registrants after the event.

Discover the latest insights, best practices, and knowledge from leading experts in the fields of genetics, veterinary medicine, and dog breeding via panel discussions and dynamic presentations. The Embark Canine Health Summit’s mission is to engage leaders from across the canine community to join in providing an educational and informative platform to:

  • Bridge the gap between canine genetics research and purpose-bred dog breeding
  • Elevate collaboration between breeders, veterinarians, canine behaviorists, genetics experts, and scientists who are all on the same journey to improve the health and lifespan of dogs
