The current non-barcoded AKC DNA kits (both prepaid and regular $50 kits) are being phased out. These “legacy” AKC DNA kits will still be accepted for processing. The original procedure of mailing the sample, payment and completed forms directly to AKC DNA Operations in Raleigh NC will still be required for processing these old-style, non-barcoded kits.
Please note, the DNA sample must be received by AKC’s service provider lab in Lincoln NE before the dog meets any DNA requirements. Kit includes all materials necessary to collect and submit a DNA sample from one dog for AKC DNA Certification.
PLEASE NOTE: Prepaid DNA test kit is nonrefundable

Why We Like It
Determines parentage only. Does not determine dog breed. The DNA Profile Program is a voluntary program the fancy can use to strengthen their breeding programs. Participants receive an AKC letter of DNA Analysis with the dog's registration information, owner's name, DNA Profile Number, and the dog's actual genotype.
