Generation Pup Study

Latest research from the University of Bristol Veterinary School – a quarter of puppies are taken from their mothers too prematurely

One in four people acquired their puppies before the advised age of eight weeks old, according to new findings from the Dogs Trust’s pioneering dog welfare study ‘Generation Pup’.

Generation Pup is a ground breaking study of the health, welfare and behaviour of our dogs throughout their whole lives. The Trust in partnership with the University of Bristol Vet School is investigating the impact that a range of factors including acquisition before eight weeks of age has on the long-term development of puppies.
