Dog Aging Project

I thought forum members might be interested in this. The University of Washington and Texas A & M are enrolling dogs in a dog aging project.

More information and a form for nominating your dog can be found by
searching for the "Dog Aging Project."

I think the website is being inundated with applications. It kept crashing before I was ultimately successful in enrolling Oscar.

Here is a CNN article about the project: https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/14/healt...rnd/index.html

Cirrus: 1980-1986
Hudson: 1987 - 1999 (adopted at 2 1/2)
Oscar: 2016 -

Note that it's only for USA residents. They don't accept applications from outside the USA.

I'm not sure what it means. The information they ask for is pretty basic so it may be first registered and you're in until they reach 10K. Or, there may be follow up questions now that we have successfully registered. We shall see. Did you have any trouble with the website?

Cirrus: 1980-1986
Hudson: 1987 - 1999 (adopted at 2 1/2)
Oscar: 2016 -

No trouble at all.
I would guess they will want detailed medical records, pedigree, daily activity, diet, etc.

I gave them my info as well. You’d think they’d be looking at a young dogs, being that it was a 10yr study. I imagine they’d want a variety of breeds, sizes, and sexes. Hopefully we’ll all hear something back.
