New DNA testing scheme


AT THE request of the Dachshund Breed Council, the Kennel Club has recently approved a new official DNA testing scheme for PRA cord-1 in the Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshund.

This test is offered by the Animal Health Trust (AHT) and further details can be obtained from dnatesting@aht.org.uk. Copies of all future test certificates issued by the AHT will be sent directly to the Kennel Club, where the test result will be added to the dog’s details on the registration database. This will trigger the publication of the test result in the next available Breed Records Supplement, and the result will also appear on any new registration certificate issued for the dog and on the registration certificates of any future progeny of the dog.

Owners who have already had their dog(s) DNA tested for this condition can send copies of the test certificate into the Kennel Club and the data will be added to the dog’s registration details. In addition, if the owner includes the original registration certificate for the dog (not a copy) then a new registration certificate will be issued, with the DNA result on it, free of charge.

Please send the DNA test certificates to: The Health & Breeder Services Department, The Kennel Club, 1 - 5 Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London W1J 8AB.

For further information on this scheme, please contact info@thekennelclub.org.uk
