For the foreseeable future the group study will be a rolling study open to ALL Flatcoated Retrievers, regardless of their breeding and country of origin. The study aims to follow the life of a Flatcoat without anonymity from the age of 8 weeks. If you have a Flatcoat puppy aged 12 months or under and would be interested in taking part please contact Liz Branscombe (collator) email: [email protected] New participants will be emailed a questionnaire for completion after their dog’s first birthday. The annual questionnaire for adult dogs (aged two and older) will be circulated electronically in May and will also be available to download from the website; completed questionnaires should be returned to the collator Liz Branscombe. An annual report will be issued at the Flatcoated Retriever Society’s AGM, and will be posted on the website, please be aware that this is a long term project and it may be a few years before any meaningful information comes to light. May we take this opportunity to thank you for your participation and look forward to a healthy future for the Flatcoated Retriever.
