Petland, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Ohio Professional Dog Breeders Association, the Ohio Department of Agriculture and the American Kennel Club (AKC) hosted the fifth annual Dog Breeder Symposium in Berlin, Ohio on March 14. More than 200 professional and hobby breeders from three states were in attendance for the breeder education event geared toward the continual improvement of dog-breeding standards.

“Petland is proud to be a partner in supporting this annual educational conference,” said Petland president and CEO Joe Watson. “Breeders from around the state learn firsthand of new science-based standards of care, and every year it is exciting to see the growth of knowledge and implementation.”

This year’s symposium was focused on socialization, training and updates in best practices for kennels. Speakers included representatives from Petland, AKC, the Ohio Professional Dog Breeders Association and veterinarians.

“It is so productive to have everyone in the same room discussing standards of care,” said Petland’s vice president 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.”
