DOGWELLNET Resources and Links
This section has material relevant to veterinarians, veterinary students and other health care professionals. Includes material from our IPFD Student Projects.
This section focuses on completed work that is reported in journals with a formal evaluation process.
In this section we link to ongoing research projects of interest and relevance to dog breeding. These may relate to specific conditions, e.g. inherited conditions, or which focus on innovative approaches or population studies. In addition, we will link to research institutes and profile partnerships between researchers and breed clubs. Eventually, we hope to describe models of research partnerships and help connect dog breeders and researchers.

To research the epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance in dogs on an international level
To use a ‘One Health’ approach as a means of integrating knowledge for gathering information from experts in the veterinary, human medical, and environmental fields related to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and behavior change.
To integrate alternative media methods of on-line learning as an educational experience for veterinarians, breeders, dog owners, and others involved with canine care.
To persuade stakeholders to change behaviors to a more prudent use of antimicrobials (PUA).

Colorado State University veterinary student Kelly Arthur's summer 2016 IPFD project, "A Veterinarian’s Role in the Ethics and Welfare of Breeding Dogs" was generously supported by the Skippy Frank Fund.
Kelly's blog provided thought-provoking topics for the DogWellNet.com community as she worked toward her veterinary degree.
More... A Veterinarian's Role in Ethics and Welfare of Breeding Dogs
Our first IPFD Student Kelly Arthur, developed articles, a blog, and interactive modules to share with the DogWellNet community. Kelly was a 3rd year veterinary student from Colorado State University, and her project was generously supported by the Skippy Frank Fund. Below is an overview of the scope of Kelly’s completed project.
Explore the complex, multi-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder aspects of ethical and welfare issues in breeding dogs; including impacts on dogs and people (human-dog interactions).
Interact with various stakeholders: breeders, veterinarians, researchers, etc. to gather information on the topic and gain an appreciation of their perspective.
Increase understanding of factors that challenge or support effective communication and good relationships between veterinarians and breeders.
Explore aspects of optimal information transfer for this material to various audiences.
