Reframing Current Challenges
Around Pedigree Dogs
A Call for Respectful Dialogue, Collaboration, and Collective Actions
IPFD recently published an article entitled: Reframing Current Challenges Around Pedigree Dogs: A Call for Respectful Dialogue, Collaboration and Collective Actions. (Available in Nederlands, English, Suomeksi, Français, Deutsch, and Español)
This article aims to build on the call to action in that publication, with further resources and suggestions on moving forward, and eventually to direct stakeholders to tools to help us pursue individual and collective actions. This will be a 'living document' as we add links and resources over time, including reporting on the efforts of others, globally.
Our aim is to encourage open and respectful dialogue, collective and collaborative actions, and a global perspective on issues affecting the health and welfare of dogs, including the impact of human dog interactions, the culture of dogs, legislative approaches, and emerging challenges.
The goal is to bring together all those individuals and organizations who believe that our world is better because we share it with dogs; who believe that pedigree dogs and all dogs deserve good health and welfare; that people involved with dogs have a responsibility to ensure the well-being of dogs whether they are involved as owners, breeders, veterinarians, legislators, in the pet industry or other; that the diversity of ways in which people interact with dogs varies internationally, and traditions and cultures should be respected, but never at the expense of basic dog health and welfare.
We offer ways to participate and lots of information, links, resources, and tools here on DogWellNet.com.
