I don't believe it's 5m dogs, it's 4m combined canine/feline.........

Interesting!

I think it's either CCI or GDA (and, now that I htink about it, it might be GDFtB- it's one of the large service dog programs that breeds their own dogs) that has done some interesting statistical studies on the success of puppies out of their programs. It'll be neat to see how the results of this compare with those, although obviously with such a tiny sample size, it won't be hugely significant.

I know at least in my area, even though we have many, many dogs in the shelter, it's very difficult for the working dog groups to find candidates in the shelters- lots of dogs with great temperament but with physical problems (especially hips) that won't hold up over a lifetime of work.
