The International Partnership for Dogs (IPFD) is a non-profit organization, registered in Sweden, initiated by a diverse group of stakeholders in the international dog world and launched in August 2014.
Mission : Facilitate collaboration and sharing of resources to enhance the health, well-being and welfare of pedigreed dogs and all dogs worldwide.
Vision: An enduring global collaboration enhancing dog health, well-being and welfare, and human-dog interactions.
The initial Board of the IPFD is comprised of individuals with respected international reputations, who represent a broad array of stakeholders in dog health, well-being and welfare and who comprise a range of backgrounds and abilities that are needed by this new organization. They sit on the Board, not as representatives of their home organizations (Founding Partners), per se, but as individuals with commitment to the mission, vision and goals of the IPFD. Further, we have included an independent member of the Board who has no formal affiliation with the Founding Partners.
In this section, we provide background on the development of DogWellNet as well as information on structure, navigation and content. * Check out the Subcategories (below) and Articles (further below).*
Salukis vary in type and the variation is desired and typical for the breed. The reason for the variation is the special place held by the Saluki in the Arab tradition and the immense size of the Middle East area where the Saluki has been used as a hound of the chase for thousands of years.
An imperturbable dog, prepared for defense, whose appearance fills with respect. Typical characteristics of this dog are his good natured, even temperament and his incorruptible loyalty towards his master. He has highly developed sense organs, intelligence, trainability, strength, endurance, speed, resistance to weather and diseases. His inborn ability to bear strain and his self assurance make him best suited for being a companion, sporting, utility and working dog.
