Dog health programs involve linking veterinarians with Indigenous communities and related health services to provide education and treatment for the dog populations in the communities. Services provided by Dog health programs include:

The aim of these programs is to improve community health and empower community members. The programs are established with consideration given to cultural protocols, community facilities and the political structure of the communities. Several dog programs are currently running across Australia in remote Indigenous communities.
