New research project seeking puppy participants for study

A new study is seeking some furry friends to help them with their animal-friendly research.

The ongoing, advancement project is called “Generation Pup”, and they are looking for puppy participants across the UK and Ireland.

The study will be carried out by The Dog’s Trust, the largest dog welfare charity in the UK, and the University of Bristol.

It will observe canines as they grow from puppyhood to adulthood.

Researchers will monitor and study the health, welfare, and behaviour of dogs throughout their growth process.

They hope the groundbreaking project will teach us more about our canine companions and how they operate, leading to improved understanding of physical ailments and behavioural issues.

The research could also lead to better treatments and training procedures for our furry friends.

Suzie Carley, Executive Director at Dogs Trust, explained the potentially beneficial outcomes of “Generation Pup” further:

“This invaluable research will tell us so much more about our beloved canine companions, from behaviour issues to illness, and will give us a better understanding of the external factors that may dictate their entire lives.

“Not only will this study deliver vital insights on our dogs’ development from an early age but the results could pave the way for effective preventative measures to be put in place, or lead to new approaches for therapy or treatment for our dogs.”

The research project is asking dog owners who have puppies 16-weeks-old or less to participate.

So, if you would like to sign up, you can do so here and be a part of a better future for dogs everywhere.
