DNA parentage analysis

Last Updated 29 September 2016

Each dog has a unique DNA signature that we call its DNA profile or fingerprint. Since a dog inherits half of its DNA from its dam and the other from its sire, we can use a dog's DNA profile to verity the biological parentage provided that DNA profiles are available from both parents.
