The AKC DNA Certification Program brings cutting-edge parentage testing technology to AKC customers. A cheek swab brush is used to collect the DNA sample from the dog, and returned to the AKC. The sample is processed by AKC's DNA service provider, MMI Genomics, and the resulting genotype is entered into the AKC DNA Database. The information is used to verify parentage of AKC dogs and for genetic identity purposes. This technology allows breeders, dog owners, and the AKC to ensure that the AKC Registry is the most accurate in the world.
AKC DNA Profile Number will be added to that dog's registration record, and will appear on Registration Certificates and Pedigrees issued to that dog.Below is a sample of what the certificate looks like.
