Please note as for all health testing the DNA tests and profiles only have to be performed on dogs that you are breeding from in your kennels and should be completed prior to submitting the litter notification.
DNA profiling requires that a mouth swab is taken from your dog and sent to an approved laboratory for testing.
SPECIFIC DNA TESTING
