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

We are now recruiting puppies from anywhere in the UK/ROI, of any breed or cross-breed. If your puppy is under 16 weeks of age 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’.

Project news

Covid-19 update from the Generation Pup team

The Generation Pup team are working hard behind the scenes and your surveys continue to be issued as normal. Just as a reminder:

➡️ The lab which processes your dog’s samples is currently not being staffed, so please DO NOT collect and return samples to us at present. We will let you know when we are in a position to process samples again.

➡️ We have also suspended mailing out of vet cards, veterinary record consent forms and sampling packs; however, we can send electronic versions of the vet cards and consent forms if requested.

➡️ We have limited access to documents returned to us through the post, and are happy to receive electronic versions of completed vet cards if you are able to email a copy to us at Should you wish to send a completed veterinary record consent form please let us know and we will send you details on how to do this via a secure method.

If you have questions, please get in touch with the Generation Pup team via email – Thank you very much for your continued support and commitment to the project during these uncertain times.

Meet Django! His owner, Joanna, had these words to share with us: “He’s a little big dog, made of Jack Russell and Cocker Spaniel bits. He’s constantly on the go and loves a game of tug! He’s happiest when all his tribe are home and giving him cuddles.” Daisy has won a Dogs Trust dog toy to play with – Congratulations!
