Petland Hosts 3rd Annual Dog Breeder Symposium

USDA and Ohio Professional Dog Breeders Association Partner in Event

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio - April 7, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Petland, Inc., the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Ohio Professional Dog Breeders Association, the Ohio Department of Agriculture and the American Kennel Club (AKC) recently hosted the third annual Dog Breeder Symposium in Berlin, Ohio. More than 250 professional and hobby breeders from three states were in attendance.

"Petland is proud to have once again helped sponsor this annual educational conference. This is truly a collaborative effort between federal and state agencies and the pet industry for the betterment of pets," said Petland President and CEO Joe Watson. "During the conference, breeders from all backgrounds learn first-hand of new science-based standards of care and it is exciting to see the enthusiasm in which these breeders are absorbing this information and making positive changes in their kennels."

The Symposium series is unique in that the five groups work together to produce an annual breeder education event geared towards the continual improvement of dog-breeding standards.

"This event has grown into one of the premier breeder educational conferences in the country," said Petland's Director of Animal Welfare Brian Winslow. "Petland works closely with the USDA and all of our conference partners as each group brings a unique set of skills and expertise to the meeting."

This year's symposium, "Designed for Success," was held March 24. Expert veterinarians, inspectors, breeders and dog trainers spoke on the importance of good kennel design and the impact on animal health and well-being. Previous symposiums have addressed the importance of socialization programs for breeding parents and their offspring as well as genetic testing.
