Generation Pup is a groundbreaking study of the health, welfare and behaviour of our dogs throught their whole lives.
I confirm that I would like to register with the Generation Pup dog cohort study, that I am 16 years of age or older, and live in the UK. I have read the information provided about the study, and understand who to contact if I have questions about it. I understand that all information about me will be treated in the strictest confidence. In registering with the project, I give permission for the Generation Pup research team to:

Thank you so much for the time and effort it has taken you to complete this questionnaire. The Generation Pup team are very grateful.
Thank you for keeping your records up to date. The Generation Pup team are very grateful.
You have attempted to access a survey page that depends on a dog being selected (or added for the first time) via your dashboard. Please try again.
We are interested in collecting samples so that we can analyse them to help identify risk factors for diseases that occur later in life.
If you agree to help by taking samples, we will provide you with sampling kits, give you detailed instructions as to how to take samples safely, and also give you access to instructional videos on our web-site.
By ticking this box you agree to samples from your dog being stored and analysed by scientific organisations.
Note: Due to restrictions, biological samples cannot easily be sent from the Republic of Ireland to the UK. For this reason we are not currently requesting samples from dog owners in the Republic of Ireland.
The behaviour tests we may ask you to do would involve either recording your dog during one of his / her normal daily activities (such as getting ready to go for a walk or when the postman or woman comes to the door), or doing a simple observational test with your dog and sending us the results.
The behaviour tests are designed to be a positive experience for you and your dog - we would not ask you to do anything that would cause any distress. For any behaviour tests that we ask you to do, we will provide you with a full set of written instructions and a video to illustrate how to do the test.
One area that we are interested in studying is the beneficial effect of owning dogs on human health (particularly mental health and disabilities).
To investigate this, it is useful for us to ask you more questions about your health and that of the members of your household.
No. of dogs: This should exlcude all puppy(s) that you are involving in the Generation Pup survey.
No. of small furry pets: For example guinea pig, gerbil, hamster, rat, etc.
No. of agricultural animals: For example cow, sheep etc.
