AKC DNA Testing
AKC DNA testing is for purebred AKC registerable breeds only. AKC DNA Profiling is for parentage verification and genetic identity purposes only and does not take the place of AKC registration requirements.
AKC DNA testing DOES NOT determine the following:
- breed of the dog
- genetic health
- performance ability
- coat color
