Does the AKA require DNA profiling of breeding dogs, and what is the AKA's position on DNA profiling?

 

This is really a two-part question.

 

AKA does not require DNA profiling of registered breeding dogs. If a pet owner or breeder has had a DNA profile completed, AKA offers the opportunity to list that on the registration certificate.

 

It has been the stated policy of the AKA that when we offer DNA to our breeders, it will be when it is economically feasible. No registry can afford to offer genuine and valid DNA profiling to all registrants absolutely free unless there is a loophole or an exclusionary clause. When DNA profiling costs as much or more than a registration fee, no legitimate registry can afford to loose money for publicity purposes.

 

AKA will OFFER it (emphasis on "offer") when it is economical enough (and it will be someday). We will let the breeders who want it pay for it.

 

To assure the highest level of integrity, microchips will be required in each dog with a DNA profile. However, even with that, it comes down to personal integrity unless a registry representative physically takes all DNA samples and inserts the microchip.

DNA profiling is beneficial to the honest but the only thing DNA profiling can absolutely hope to accomplish overall is to provide a public relations tool to those who feel they need it. We will make DNA testing available in the near future, at the breeders expense.
