Dog Breeds Have Required Genetic Tests
These Tests Should Be Done Prior to Breeding
Ask to see results of genetic tests
Each AKC breed has a National Breed club. There can only be one national breed club for each breed. The national breed club is responsible for the determination of which tests are required and which tests are optional for their associated breed.
There are over 200 dog breeds. Each breed has different required tests to assist in the determination of whether or not a specific dog has any negative genetic issues.
