DNA Testing

Each dog entered in a VCA National Event (field and specialty )‚Äč must have a DNA number. The DNA number may be obtained only thru the American Kennel Club.

The process is as follows:

  1. E-mail, call, fax or write to the American Kennel Club to obtain a DNA kit. This kit consists of a cotton swab and instructions on the preparation of the swab for submission to AKC along with the required paperwork.
  2. It is best to begin this process NO LATER THAN six weeks before the closing date of the event you plan to enter.
  3. If you do not receive your number within a couple of weeks of the sample's submission, contact AKC to see if they have assigned a number to the sample. That is the number you will enter on the entry form.
  4. It is not necessary to submit the results of the DNA test with your entry.

DNA Test Kits may be ordered through the AKC Online Store, or by contacting the AKC:

AKC has two types of kits. The regular kit is available at no charge, and the $40 processing fee (per dog) is due when the sample is returned to the AKC. AKC also offers a Prepaid Test Kit for only $35 (per dog). You can save $5 per dog by paying in advance.

AKC DNA testing is available for purebred AKC registerable breeds only.
