The Pet Leadership Council (PLC) announced today the launch of Be Dog Smart™, a new education initiative designed to help consumers make informed decisions about responsible dog adoption and to provide resources for those who have recently brought a dog into their home.

At the core of the Be Dog Smart initiative is a user-guided website that offers easy-to-understand information before bringing home a new puppy or dog, such as costs to consider and important questions to ask, such as how to identify responsible breeders and rescues.

The Be Dog Smart website was developed in partnership with industry experts from a variety of backgrounds, including those involved in responsible breeding, shelter and rescues, animal welfare, academia and others who work to assure the best care and well-being of companion animals.
