Audrey Ruple, Melissa Jones, Missy Simpson, Rodney Page. J Vet Intern Med, 35(1): 142-149 (2021).

The Golden Retriever Lifetime Study (GRLS) is one of the largest canine cohort studies undertaken in the United States to date. This study design allows for evaluation of multiple exposures and outcomes throughout the lifetime of each dog, but relies on participants to comply with study requirements over a long period of time. Failure to do so can lead to biased reporting of results.
