Disclaimers and Policies
The Canine Heritage™ XL Breed Test is not designed for use as a purebred or paternity verification test and is not an established legal tool. A kennel or breed club certifies a dog’s breed based on pedigree documentation. If necessary, kennel and breed clubs use legally recognized canine paternity testing to verify relationship. These tests use a different type of DNA analysis than the Canine Heritage™ XL Breed Test.
Currently the Canine Heritage™ XL Breed Test is sold only in the U.S. and Canada. The Canine Heritage™ XL Breed Test was developed and validated using United States dog breed populations. Breeds outside the United States and Canada may not be represented or identified by the Canine Heritage™ XL Breed Test.
Along iwth a fast turn around, our dog DNA test collection process is simple — no visit to the veterinarian and no drawing of blood. Our painless process involves a quick cheek swab in the comfort of YOUR dog house.
