Action Step 1: DNA Test Your Dog (Video & Handout)

Watch the video above for information on the importance of DNA testing for this program and how to categorize your dog’s DNA results. The document below gives a detailed example of catergorizing the DNA results. Once you have the results, please post the categories and percentages in the course Facebook group.

Please Note:

  1. If you have a purebred dog and you are sure of where s/he came from, DNA testing is not necessary.
  2. We are only asking for a breed DNA test. You have the option of also testing for health information, which you are welcome to do, but the health portion is not necessary for the course.

Please do not wait for the DNA test to come back before continuing along with the Action Steps.
