-- New social networking site invites YOU to determine what makes a GudDawg!
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new initiative to engage dogs and their owners in a bold new cultural and scientific endeavor, GudDawg™, is inviting all dog owners – or anyone interested in dogs – to participate in a new global crowdsourcing effort to use the Internet to improve the daily lives of billions of humans and dogs in the years to come. You can be a part of this revolution by visiting GudDawg.org or http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/guddawg-breeding-perfect-pets
"Dogs have a major daily impact on the lives of billions of people," says Professor Dave Grossman, former West Point psychology professor and world-famous author, who is spearheading the efforts. "Changing and improving the nature of dogs will change and improve the very nature of our civilization."
As described in this three-minute clip from the NOVA video Dogs and More Dogs, which can be viewed at GudDawg's website: http://guddawg.org, we must focus on breeding the best pets for social companionship, and we are inviting you and your dog to come join us on this great adventure.
For as little as $10, you can support this endeavor and get a GudDawg Page, a social 'petworking' forum where you and your dog can help match, mate, rate, and breed a better dog! At higher contribution levels you can be part of crowd-sourcing the standards for a GudDawg. In just a few generations, GudDawg puppies will be an extraordinary sought after commodity. Celebrities and millionaires may seek them, but people like you will breed them, nurture them, love them, and adopt them into a loving home.
"It is audacious and radical," says Professor Grossman. "It is straight out of the pages of science fiction (see Robert Heinlein's neo-dogs, or David Brin's Uplift War). It can have an impact in just a few years. And it is something we can do, right now, to help improve the lives of billions of people, all made possible by the Internet, crowd-sourcing, social media, a bold new idea, and you and your dog!"
"We have bred dogs for everything ... except to be good pets and companions!" says Grossman. "Whenever you breed dogs for anything (color, size, etc.) you breed against everything else. We want YOU and YOUR DOG to join the GudDawg team! Even if your dog is spayed or neutered, your input and support are still valuable and deeply appreciated."
WHAT IS GUDDAWG ?
The basic concept is to use the Internet to crowd-source "what makes a GOOD dog" and to crowd-fund the process. And then to provide an on-line social-networking/petworking forum to match, mate, breed and evaluate a new sub-species of dogs. A GudDawg is the ideal social companion, a modern miracle, a new concept in the canine species, and a legend in the making. Thus, GudDawg is a combination of Facebook and MatchMaker for dogs. But it is much more than that. GudDawg is a global movement, made possible by the technology of the Internet, to improve the daily lives of billions of humans and dogs in the years to come. A GudDawg is the ideal social companion, a modern miracle, a new concept in the canine species, and a legend in the making. And YOU can be a part of this process.
