Collection of all semen samples required for the study has been completed. Samples from 62 dogs presented to the veterinary hospital at The Ohio State University have been preserved in formalin and shipped to the University of Pennsylvania. Acquisition of dog sperm images has started. In addition, we have started the work with our collaborators at the University of Wisconsin‐Madison to develop an algorithm to automatically identify and crop sperm using a bank of bovine sperm images. The expectation is that the trained algorithm will be able to identify dog sperm with similar accuracy.
