IPFD is a truly "people driven" service organization. Our structure and resources (a modest budget and small group of consultants, volunteers, and Board Members) facilitate the activities of our stakeholders to achieve our individual and collective priorities for the health and welfare of dogs. As a growing, independent voice within the global dog community, we aim to provide the best possible information and advice to assist our stakeholders in making optimal decisions for their members, customers, and breed(s) of interest. IPFD provides and supports a ‘big picture’, balanced, transparent and integrated approach to the complex challenges for dogs and the people who care about them.
Our key audiences are, first and foremost, committed and health-conscious breeders, as well as those who support and advise them (kennel and breed club health committees, breeding advisors, veterinarians, researchers etc.), but also include essentially all those involved in the world of dogs including, kennel/breed clubs; dog owners; the pet industry; and more. Our consultants work tirelessly to engage others who embrace our vision and are willing to share their information, expertise, and passion for dogs.
We connect with these stakeholders through our online platform, DogWellNet. com; social media; and direct correspondence; in addition to hosting/ attending face-to-face meetings, conferences (e.g. the IPFD IDHWs), seminars, and other educational/networking events.
