DNA profiling, also known as DNA fingerprinting or genotyping, establishes a genetic code for individual dogs of every breed. This test does not determine breed. Rather, it identifies specific gene markers that are inherited from both parents. These can be used to identify the parents of a dog.

Canine DNA profiling is a useful tool to accurately identify a dog (particularly in case the dog is stolen) or to prove parentage. DNA Profiling does NOT determine the breed of a dog.

Parentage Analysis:

DNA Profiling is an efficient and extremely accurate way of proving parentage. In cases where the sire of a litter is uncertain, the DNA profiles of the mother, father, and offspring can be compared. Any alleles present in the offspring that did not come from either parent means that a secondary sire is probable.
