Dog DNA Test for Profiling (Genotyping)
Provides permanent, fail-proof identification for your dog
Is there a Pet DNA Test that can Help Protect my Dog if He’s Lost or Stolen?
A profile (or genotyping) dog DNA test is used to establish a secure, permanent ID for your dog in case he is lost or stolen. Using the same technology as parentage testing among dog families, the unique set of allele sizes for the dog are tested and recorded so you can have them should they ever be needed. Not sure this is the right test for you? Contact us for a free consultation.
IMPORTANT: DNA profiling does not determine the ancestry of mixed-breed dogs.

A pet DNA test profile provides peace of mind and security
Tags can be taken off and microchips aren’t always effective in long-term, but DNA never changes. DNA profiles also serve as a tool for breeders who need to keep DNA-profile records of their breeding group (dams and sires) in case a parentage verification of their offspring is ever needed in the future. Many registries keep records of DNA profiles to verify pedigrees.
The dog-profile report includes our panel of 16 DNA markers and the numeric allele sizes at each marker. Each DNA marker has 2 allele sizes: one is inherited from the dam and one from the sire. These DNA markers do not tell about inherited traits, diseases or breed make-up.
DNA results are emailed within 10 days, once all samples are received at the laboratory.
Your dog-DNA test kit for profiling includes:
- Sterile DNA-collection swabs
- Complete instructions
Postage-paid return envelope (if mailed in the U.S.)
