Safeguarding the welfare of dogs used for breeding requires an understanding of the science underlying canine welfare.

Life of Riley is proud to support the efforts of Dr. Jyothi Robertson and her team to create a dynamic compilation of scientific journal articles pertaining to canine breeding in commercial settings. Peer-reviewed papers were collected from and are presented here with associated links. Some articles were selected for annotation and are hyperlinked within the document to the summary. This list is not exhaustive and should be viewed as representative of the research that exists in this space. This list was created and is being updated by Dr. Jyothi V. Robertson and her team.

The annotated bibliography can be found here and a list highlighting gaps in research can be found here.
