Selection, Acclimation, Training, and Preparation of Dogs for the Research Setting
Dogs have made and will continue to make valuable contributions as animal models in biomedical research. A comprehensive approach from time of breeding through completion of in-life usage is necessary to ensure that high quality dog models are used in studies. This approach ensures good care and minimizes the impact of interanimal variability on experimental results.
