This related study sampled 40 dogs from 20 households over the course of three seasons. Three skin sites were examined. The goal of the study was to determine if a core skin microbiome exists in dogs across time and body site, and if cohabitation impacts sharing of the skin microbiome. This dataset is a part of the Torres_Johnson Canine Microbiome Study.
