To be eligible for Foundation, Precision, or TRIAD, participants must be Pack members who have submitted electronic veterinary medical records with the Health and Life Experience Survey (click here to read more about veterinary records). From this subset of Pack members, our veterinary team will review medical records and identify dogs who fit the age, sex, size, genetic background, geographic, and health parameters required for participation in these cohorts.
Participation in Foundation, Precision, and TRIAD is by invitation only. Only dogs meeting the specific criteria for a cohort will be invited to join. All of the cohorts—Pack, Foundation, Precision, and TRIAD—are critical to the success of our research program. We want people to participate in ways that feel comfortable to them. If a dog isn’t invited this time around or if a dog owner decides not to accept an invitation to one of the cohorts, there will be other opportunities in the future to contribute.
