June 05 2018: New promotional video!

We are very excited to share our new film about Generation Pup with you.

Finding recruits for Generation Pup is a vital part of the success of the project. That is why we have created this film to help spread the word about the project.

Please watch some of our Generation Pup dogs starring in our new animation film!  This video will soon be displayed in veterinary practices across the country to help us recruit lots more puppies to the study. Please share everyone and help us make a real difference.

June 01 2018: Dog of the Month!

This is Willow a big and bouncy Bernese Mountain Dog. Her owner had these words to share with us: “Willow is a gentle giant. She is extremely affectionate and sweet-natures, even though she is going through a mischievous phrase. She always has a cheeky Bernese Mountain Dog grin so you can’t stay cross with her for long!”. We are so grateful to Eirian (Willow’s owner) and Willow for their participation in the Generation Pup research project.
