Breeder Surveys

Researchers from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph are conducting a series of online surveys examining how dog breeders are managing breeding females and puppies. This research is aimed at understanding common practices used by dog breeders in Canada and the United States. More specifically we would like to identify early management factors that might be protective against the development of behaviour and welfare issues later in life. We are currently recruiting participants for the second survey looking at puppy resource management. Additional surveys will be released in the coming months. We are hoping breeders from Greyhound Club of America will be interested in participating in this research. If so, further details on this particular survey are provided in the advertisement below, and in the preamble to the online survey. We can also provide a paper copy of this survey if you get in touch with us using the contact information provided below. We are hoping you would be willing to forward this to breeders in your breed group.

Therapy Dog Symposium

The third annual National Dog Show Therapy Dog Symposium at Rowan University. This day brings together therapy dog handlers, health care experts, academics, those who want to get involved and people who simply love dogs, to share information, cutting edge research, insights from practical applications and best practices.

It will be held both in-person and virtual on Nov 30th.  We are most excited to have a conversation with Dr. Temple Grandin as one of our keynotes and Dr. Carlo Siracusa, DVM, MS, PhD as our second keynote speaker.
