Available Tests From Related Breeds

The breeds we know today have been selectively bred for from a few common ancestors. Breeds that were derived from common ancestors constitute a breed group. Because a breed group is genetically related, mutations and diseases in ancestors or within a breed put all breeds within that group at risk for the same inherited disorders. Therefore, we have provided you the diseases that occur in common ancestors and related breeds so that you can decide whether you wish to also exclude these diseases in your dog.

Coat Color and Trait Tests

Paw Print Genetics offers testing for common coat colors and traits. Some genes have more than one mutation, such as those genes involved in Agouti and determining a brown coat color. The tests for those variants have been combined for simplicity in ordering. To learn more, just click any of the coat color or trait names below.
When added on to a breed bundle, the coat color and trait panel includes all coat colors and trait tests provided by Paw Print Genetics. This add-on option is not available à la carte.
