Research Mini-Symposium

Research Mini-Symposium - Welfare of dogs in commercial breeding kennels

Friday, June 24, 2022
9:00 am - 12:15 pm ET
Virtual - Links will follow

Our lab and collaborators will present findings from the many studies we have done on welfare in commercial kennels with implications for how people might use that information.  The goal is to better inform state vets, state departments of agriculture, legislators at various levels, veterinarians and VMAs, NGOs, GOs, scientists and others about our findings so that people have a sense of what we now know that we didn’t before. 

This program will be offered virtually with registration.
