Partner with us to discover the keys to healthy lifespan! The Dog Aging Project brings together a community of people committed to giving dogs the happiest, longest lives possible. Our expert veterinarians and scientists will team up with 10,000 dogs and their owners to identify factors critical to improving healthy lifespan. If you and your best friend are interested in being part of the most ambitious canine health study in the world, start the process by clicking the button below.

The goal of the Dog Aging Project is to understand how genes, lifestyle, and environment influence aging. We want to use that information to help dogs and people increase healthspan, the period of life spent free from disease. With help from you, we’ll gather information on thousands of participating dogs. We want to know what factors are associated with better health and longer lives. A subset of participating dogs will be selected to be part of a new clinical study to explore the potential of the drug rapamycin to improve healthspan. We are building an unprecedented research platform that will enable us to follow the health and aging progression of each dog in our program. The Dog Aging Project is committed to advancing our understanding of aging and to accelerating medical breakthroughs for dogs and humans. We will integrate our findings about dogs with other scientific and medical programs around the world to power research on health and aging in a way never before possible. Learn More Meet Our Citizen Scientists Hi, I’m Leslie from Maryland As pet owners, Anthony and I want our dog to live forever. As a veterinarian, I want patients to live longer and have good quality of life in those later years. Dog Aging Project Pack Member: Oscar (Age 11) Hi, I’m Rafael from Massachusetts I’m interested in personalized medicine. We’ve made strides in understanding how genetic changes impact human disease, but we have not yet assessed this for dogs. Dog Aging Project Pack Member: Luke (Age 2) Hi, I’m Tom from Washington Piper has helped heal our pain after losing two dogs last year. Participation in research that might extend the time we have with our dogs is a given. Dog Aging Project Pack Member: Piper (Age 1) Hi, I’m Richard from California I’m interested in healthy aging for humans and dogs. Genetics, physiology, lifestyle—it’s all connected. I want to keep Nikki healthy as long as we can. Dog Aging Project Pack Member: Nikki (Age 8) Hi, I’m Donna from Maryland Prior to getting Pablo, we had a 130-pound mastiff. This is another reason I was interested in the project. Why do smaller dogs age differently than larger ones? Dog Aging Project Pack Member: Pablo (Age 2) Hi, I’m Maleeha from Texas Dogs are like little humans. They have their own personalities. Kawhi is very vocal. When I come home, he howls like he’s telling me about his day! Dog Aging Project Pack Member: Kawhi (Age 2) Hi, I’m Brooks from Washington If dogs are aging at 7 years for every human year, we can learn, in a short period of time, things that can inform human health. I think that’s extremely worthwhile. Dog Aging Project Pack Member: Cortes (Age 8) Hi, I’m Jill from Florida Having this opportunity to share something of such importance with my dog is an exciting prospect. It’s nice knowing Chippy and I are making a contribution. Dog Aging Project Pack Member: Chippy (Age 7) Donate Help dogs and humans live longer, healthier lives! The Dog Aging Project holds the promise of advancing our understanding of aging, behavior, disease, and much more. With your help, we can revolutionize dog health. Join us!
