As soon as a dog is invited to join the Precision Cohort, you will be able to read more about the study and will be asked to sign an informed owner consent form, stating that you know what is involved with participation and that you are willing to complete all study-related tasks.
If you sign the consent form and join the Precision Cohort, your personal research portal will guide you through all study-related tasks. If, at any point in the process, you choose not to complete any of the tasks or are unable to complete tasks with the support of our team, you will be removed from the cohort but will continue to be part of the Pack as before.
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. There will be other opportunities in the future to contribute.
