Stay informed of the latest progress in canine health research.
We need your support to fund research that helps dogs live longer, healthier lives.
This list contains available canine genetic tests which have been brought to the Foundation's attention and respect intellectual property laws. If you know of additional genetic tests being offered, please contact the Foundation with the disease, breed, and laboratory contact information.
While many of these discoveries were supported by the Foundation, this list does not imply they resulted from a AKC Canine Health Foundation grant and does not imply the Foundation endorses these tests. This list is provided as a service to dog owners and breeders.
For more information about genetic tests we recommend you read DNA testing and domestic dogs published in Mammalian Genome. This article discusses some of the factors that should be considered when using genetic tests.
A Complete List of Genetic Test Laboratories with contact information is available.

Participate in canine health research by providing samples or by enrolling in a clinical trial. Samples are needed from healthy dogs and dogs affected by specific diseases.
Search our research portfolio to see what research we are funding on a particular disease.
When you make a memorial donation we will post a photo of your dog to our Celebration Wall gallery.
