Symposium on Healthy Dog Breeding

Register Today for a Symposium on Healthy Dog Breeding
Re: Extreme Conformation in Dogs and Collective Approaches for the Future

Presented by International Partnership for Dogs (IPFD) and the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) in collaboration with the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA)  

Tuesday, July 12 at 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET


Join us virtually for this free, interactive symposium as we look at the challenges, responsibilities and opportunities related to the health and welfare of dogs with extreme conformation, from the perspective of the breeder, show judge and veterinary community, in addition to the pet industry. The symposium is part of the IPFD’s International Dog Health Workshop initiative and represents a key area of focus for CKC and CVMA to support breed health improvement.

Learn about the work that CKC, IPFD and CVMA are doing nationally and internationally to tackle the complex issues regarding the extreme conformation of dogs—particularly brachycephalic breeds—and why multi-stakeholder collaboration is critical to ensure a healthier future for dogs.

We are excited to feature presentations by Dr. Brenda Bonnett (IPFD), Dr. Enid Stiles (CVMA), Dr. Paul Eckford (CKC/IPFD), Dr. Terill Udenberg (CKC), Richard Paquette (CKC), Dr. Jordyn Hewer (Royal Canin) and Dr. Emmanuel Fontaine (Royal Canin). We are also pleased to have CKC Executive Director, Jeff Cornett on board and welcome Dr. Michelle Groleau (CVMA) as our moderator. Find out more about our speakers below.

Don’t miss our panel discussion which will focus on individual and collaborative activities to address key issues on extreme conformation, including a Q&A period. A recording of this symposium will also be available for all registrants.

Please note that the event will be held in English-only and we are sorry for any inconvenience.
