Testing Process:

1.   Once you place your order online, DOGenes sends you DNA sampling kits along with instructions.
      If you can't wait for your DNA swabs, click here for instructions.
  Kits are send via air mail. For
      International orders this usually takes 7-10 business days.

2.  Once we receive the DNA samples, our turn around time is 5-10 business days.
     You can get your results and certificates of analysis online if you set up an account at:

     When your results are complete, we upload the results to your account and send you an email.

      Otherwise we will mail you your certificates.

What happens if your DNA samples do not pass quality control?

    The most common reason for failure to get DNA for analysis is that the brushes were not properly dried, OR,
    there is dog food or other contaminates on the brush. 
After the samples have been taken the brushes should look clean.

   This only happens occasionally, and when it does we send replacement brushes and re-test to the owner at NO cost.
