What should I do with my dog’s DNA profile?

Keep your profile certificate in a safe place, in case you may need it in the future.

For example:

  1. If you dog is lost or stolen in the future, and is found, you will need the profile to prove that the found dog is yours.
  2. If your dog produces any puppies in the future, you can use the existing profile in parentages analyses without having to have him/her tested again (as long as the offspring are tested using the same ISAG 2006 markers).
