Pup of the month

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’.

Covid-19 update from the Generation Pup team

We just wanted to reassure all our lovely participants and supporters that Generation Pup is still running and your surveys will continue to be issued as normal.

The Generation Pup team have adopted a working from home policy. The key areas affected are:

1) We have suspended mailing out of vet cards, veterinary record consent forms and sampling packs for the time being. However, we can send electronic versions of the vet cards and consent forms if requested.

2) We have limited access to documents returned to us through the post. We are happy to receive electronic versions of completed vet cards if you are able to email a copy to us at generationpup@dogstrust.org.uk. 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.

3) The lab which processes canine samples that owners submit is no longer being staffed, so if you are waiting to collect and return samples from your dog – please wait to do this for now.

If you have questions, please get in touch with the Generation Pup team via email – generationpup@dogstrust.org.uk.

We thank you so much for your continued support and commitment to the project during these uncertain times.
