Our Research Trip To California- The Fun Stuff

Our Research Trip To California- The Fun Stuff

Over the past 1.5 years, CPT Head Trainer and Dog Star Technologies co-founder Mark Spivak has traveled to California bi-monthly to complete a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) contracted canine neuroimaging project that uses fMRI biomarkers to better identify high-potential service dog candidates.  The project incorporates leading-edge science to improve dog training technology.

Mark and the team work hard during their business trips.  However, all work and no play makes Mark a dull dog trainer and scientist.  Therefore, he included some fun during the last trip to the Bay Area.

We hope you enjoy the photos:
