While we do not require DNA proof of parentage for registration at this time, we are pleased to offer parental DNA verification at a discounted rate to our members. The cost per dog is $15, plus $3 shipping within the US (regardless of how many tests are ordered).
This test is for parental DNA/identification purposes only and does not test for any health conditions or breed heritage, simply verifies that a dog is the offspring of the stated parents. (Both parents and puppy in question must be tested.) DNA profiles, when available, will be printed on IPA registration certificates. In order for this to be done, however, each puppy must be individually tested and the litter registered with IPA.
The DNA test is a simple swab kit which will be sent to you and which is then returned to the laboratory where it is tested and the results sent to you via email and posted in an online database.
