Can I get a copy of my dog’s DNA profile?

When we have completed testing, we will send you an electronic report and certificate (included in the price) which provides details of your dog’s DNA profile and will confirm that the DNA profile has been loaded to the Forensic Dog DNA Database. For a small additional charge we can also post you a printed copy of your report and certificate.

You can also purchase a printed image of your dog’s Forensic DNA profile (unframed or framed) as our laboratory scientists would view the results. This makes a fantastic talking point and is a unique representation of what makes your dog one of a kind.
