Our Mission

To promote the welfare of dogs by providing carefully curated, science-based information from a variety of sources that is easily accessible to commercial dog breeders and other individuals and organizations that care about dogs.

Our goal is to bridge knowledge gaps within the canine caretaker community and to bring groups of caretakers together to work toward a shared quest to improve the welfare of dogs living in breeding, research, teaching, and sheltering kennels.
