That would be a cynologist then. It seems quite a rare word so there may be another answer.

Hi Lizzyminto
http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Cynologist

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/cynologist

These 2 sites do give it as study of bow wows, as does wikipedia(not really know for it's reliability).wikipedia seems to be suggesting that these people refer to themselves as Cynologist's so that other people don't laugh at them when they say what they do.
charming eh?
