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.Learn More
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.
LYME DISEASE PREVENTION MONTH
Spring is here and with the warmer months come some unpleasant outdoor critters! Lyme disease, which is transmitted by infected deer ticks, is the most common tick borne disease here in New England can be a serious concern for dogs and humans alike! Taking inspiration from our human counterparts, the staff at Slade wants you to recognize the many ways we can prevent Lyme disease in our canine companions. So don't get "tick"-ed off—ask us about popular monthly flea and tick preventatives, the lyme vaccine, and even some handy DIY techniques (hint: lint rollers!).
