Join us as MOD welcomes Dr. Cynthia Otto of the Penn Vet Working Dog Center for an enlightening lecture on the health and behavior of search and detection dogs following the 9/11 response.

She provides medical care to the dogs at the Penn Vet Working Dog Center and provides rehabilitation to working dogs after illness or injury. The Penn Vet Working Dog Center is a resource for behavioral, nutrition, development and conditioning studies in dogs being trained for detection work.
