Approaching fast – but there are still places available at the IPFD 3rd International Dog Health Workshop hosted by the French Kennel Club in Paris 21-23 April 2017  - Register here!


Why not join us in Paris for a truly interactive working meeting of international decision-leaders in dog health and welfare.  We already have people registered from over 20 countries, including breeders, kennel club health advisors, communication experts, Directors and Presidents; veterinarians; researchers; veterinary organizations; welfare organizations; judges; geneticists; industry representatives; and more.  



Share your information, expertise and experience and be part of global actions to improve the health, well-being and welfare of dogs.


There are short plenary talks early on Saturday.  From 10:45 on Saturday until 2 pm on Sunday the focus is on interactive breakout sessions designed to identify priorities, needs and actions need to advance within six Themes.  Each attendee participates in one theme; as well as plenary sharing sessions to share goals and convergence across themes and a final summary to identify key actions moving forward toward the 4th IDHW (in the UK in 2019).

Please see the Workshop website to register and for more information on the venue and program; including the listing of internationally recognized speakers who will deliver our short but powerful plenary talks.

Here are the Themes:

  • Breed-Specific Health Strategies: By breed, nationally and internationally.
  • Exaggerations And Extremes In Dog Conformation: Health, welfare and breeding considerations; latest national and international efforts. 
  • IPFD Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs Initiative: Selection, evaluation and application of genetic testing
  • Behaviour and Welfare: How can we better integrate concepts of welfare, behaviour and health in breeding and raising dogs?
  • Education and Communication - Antimicrobial Resistance/ Prudent Use of Antibiotics: How can international collaboration support education and communication within and across stakeholder groups (esp. between veterinarians and breeders).
  • Show Me The Numbers: Integrating information from various sources for prevalence, risks and other population-level information
