Generation Pup

Generation Pup is the first study to follow dogs of all breeds from puppy-hood as they grow up into adults. They are asking owners of all UK 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.  So Haven Veterinary Group have decided to get on board and help to recruit puppy owners.

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. 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.
