      Basics - Where we work

      Top Photo:



      As a "virtual" organization, we have no physical headquarters/offices and, therefore, minimal fixed costs; over 95% of our budget goes to programs. Essentially, we work wherever we are and with those who share our mission and goals.

      IPFD is registered in Sweden and legally overseen by the Swedish Kennel Club. Our consultants work from their homes (Canada, USA, Sweden, Finland, etc.) or wherever they are traveling in the world advancing the mission of IPFD. We have collaborating experts, partners and collaborators, from Europe and North America, Australia and Asia, but we are continuing to expand our reach, with members of and visitors to from all continents and dozens of countries.


      And - through our Partners, Collaborators... including the international list of Genetic Test Providers who participate in our Harmonization of Genetic Testing Database .... and our experts who participate in the International Dog Health Workshops... our team is wider still.



    Signature Work



    Our Platform - is the online platform for IPFD and is a curated information hub as well as housing resources to support actions by IPFD and its Partners and Collaborators.





    International Dog Health Workshops



    The IPFD's signature events, the IDHWs bring together decision makers from professional, regulatory, national and regional, welfare and other organisations that are stakeholders in dog health, well-being and welfare and human-dog interactions under the tagline 'From Information and Collaboration to Action'.





    Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs Database



    The HGTD Database catalogs information provided voluntarily from genetic test providers (GTPs) including information on their company and services, quality measures and expertise, tests offered and more. We are continually engaging more GTP participants. IPFD has collated and assembled existing and new resources for genetic counselling and education; and provided the foundation for further developments.





    Breeds Database



    As of March 2023, our Pedigree Dogs Database lists 183 breeds: information includes breed standards, population data, club newsletters, breed databases, videos and much, much more. Sections on Native Breeds and Additional Resources including Agria Breed Profiles, Globally Relevant Integrated Health Profile (GRIHP) articles which describe the Big Picture of health on (all) conditions that are of interest within a breed GRIHP and associated IPFD WSAVA Meet the Breed articles are available. Many thanks to breed experts and clubs for sharing information on their breed with the Community.
