There is no age limit for taking a DNA swab from a dog – the dogs’ DNA remains unchanged from birth throughout its life, which is why it is nature’s ultimate identification system!
If swabbing a very young puppy that is still suckling, it is particularly important to wait for at least an hour after feeding before taking the mouth swab. Otherwise, you may collect some DNA from the mother’s milk which could interfere with the test result.
