What are the most pressing welfare issues in companion dogs? In this article we look at the priorities of several organizations working in this area and contrast their focus; this not meant to me an exhaustive coverage but to highlight the range of issues that come under the term 'welfare' and to underline the complex interactions across health, well-being and welfare in companion animals. There is no global system to rank the 'worst' or 'most important' problems. But as we look at any issue that is of great importance to us, personally, it is good to remember that dogs and people exist together and separately in a complex environment that encompasses physical, physiological, emotional, societal and other factors. It is important to consider the broader context even as we focus on specific issues.
