The Working Dog Project is a collaborative effort of the Theriogenology Foundation and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. It is the most ambitious canine behavioral genetics study ever conceived and is designed to identify the genetic basis for working ability in dogs by comparing the DNA of thousands of dogs through the use of whole genome sequencing.

We breed purebred dogs and cats to preserve a closed, and therefore endangered, gene pool. With each planned breeding of our purebred/purpose-bred dog or cherished feline, we aim to produce a generation of healthier offspring. Whether you need pre-breeding health clearances for both your stud dog and brood bitch, semen cryopreservation, advanced insemination procedures, high risk pregnancy monitoring or DNA testing of neonates, we help you breed for success.
WORLD SPAY DAY: FEBRUARY 25TH
Started by the Doris Day Animal League in 1995, World Spay Day on February 25 shines the spotlight on the importance of accessible and affordable spay and neuter programs to save the lives of our companion animals. Please feel free to ask the veterinarians at Slade Veterinary Hospital if spay or neuter is right for your pet, and what it might mean for their health.
