Could your dog be our next ‘Pup of the Month’?

We are now recruiting puppies from anywhere in the UK, of any breed or cross-breed. If your puppy is 16 weeks of age or under please consider signing up, and joining the Generation Pup community. You could help us to make Generation Pup a once in a lifetime study with benefits for all of dogdom! Plus your puppy could be chosen as ‘Pup of the Month’.

March 14 2018: 1000th Puppy Recruited to Generation Pup!

The Generation Pup team are delighted to introduce gorgeous ‘Sunny’ who was the 1,000th pup to be signed up to this amazing project!

Sunny’s owner has very kindly shared these words about her puppy:

“Sunny has now been with us for three weeks and already he is a big part of our family. He is settling in really well and Junior (our 10 year old Old English Sheepdog) is looking forward to being able to introduce Sunny to his favourite walks in the New Forest at Easter! Sunny currently spends a lot of the time chasing Junior around, playing with his toys and running around with the chickens in our garden, so the only peace and quiet we get is when he flops down absolutely worn out!”

Thank you so much to Sunny’s owner and to every single one of our other Generation Pup dog owners.
