We are in the process of compiling articles and materials that elaborate upon health management concerns for brachycephalic breeds. We will add to these resources over time, and encourage IPFD's Partners to assist us by providing relevant content. Please see the Breed Database pages for each of the Brachycephalic breeds - we welcome our content partners and breed experts to provide content for inclusion on the individual breed's pages. This collection of articles reflects work done to address the brachycephalic breed's issues by different countries, kennel clubs, the scientific research community, veterinarians and canine health and welfare experts. Breeder's efforts to produce healthy, typey dogs and judge's roles in awarding functional breed representatives play a significant part in individual dog's length and quality of life. Ultimately it is hoped that understanding and discussion of the issues will promote a promising future meeting the goal of improving health and welfare amongst the brachycephalic dog breeds. The reference materials listed below are housed on the DogWellNet website in different categories - i.e., in Downloads, Forums, Blogs, the Breeds Database pages for brachycephalic breeds and in various DogWellNet Health and Welfare Categories.

"The Kennel Club has launched a Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome (BOAS) online learning resource on the Kennel Club Academy, to provide free and easily accessible education to those with an interest in BOAS and the research being undertaken at Cambridge University with brachycephalic dog breeds."
