In this section we will focus on issues with an impact on dog welfare, linking to policies and approaches from around the world. Many of these topics will intersect with Health and Breeding, Research and other topics on DogWellNet.com. Specifically, we will look at welfare issues related to the breeding and distribution of purposely bred dogs, issues and legislation related to health and welfare and human-animal interactions. In this section, the focus will be on evidence and approaches; there will be overlap or links with the Education section.
