Welcome to Generation Pup an exciting new adventure in canine science.
Generation Pup is the first study to follow dogs of all breeds from puppy-hood as they grow up into adults. We are asking owners of all UK and Republic of Ireland puppies of 16 weeks of age or less, of any breed or cross breed, to sign up and become part of the Generation Pup community.
By collecting information about each puppy – their environment, family, health, behaviour and experiences – we can build up a picture of a whole generation of dogs across the UK and Republic of Ireland. This means that researchers in the Generation Pup team can investigate whether aspects such as environment, social interaction, diet, exercise or daily routine may be important in the development of a range of health and behaviour conditions which impact on the well-being of our dogs.
Even if you don’t own a puppy you can still get involved. We need help spreading the word about the project, and by subscribing to our newsletter you will receive regular email updates about the progress of the project.
Generation Pup is generously funded by Dogs Trust, the largest dog welfare charity in the UK.
