Kennel Club offers discounted DNA tests ahead of Game Fair

The Kennel Club will once again be attending The Game Fair, which is set to take place at Ragley Hall, Warwickshire on 28-30 July, and, in the lead-up to the show, is offering a discount on its DNA Testing Services with the promotional code: GAMEFAIR15

The tests can be purchased from The Kennel Club website, and experts will also be on the main stand at the Game Fair to answer questions.

Launched in 2022, The Kennel Club DNA Testing Services have been developed to improve and protect dog health, and to promote responsible dog breeding. 

Currently available for 78 breeds, including 18 Gundog breeds, the tests are priced between £60 to £140, with a special Game Fair offer of 15% off all Breed-Specific Packages, The Kennel Club DNA Testing Services provide cost-effective access to the most impactful genetic health tests – without the need to carry out each one individually – with results that are easy to interpret and accompanied by breeding and care advice.

The service has been uniquely developed by The Kennel Club in partnership with Weatherbys Scientific, to provide breeders with the tools needed to breed against the verified, breed relevant diseases, but also to advance understanding of dog disease, with those who use the service contributing to canine genetic research – both through data collection and with all funds reinvested into ongoing research and health initiatives.

Test results are automatically registered on a dog’s record and available over on our website, allowing breeders to find health-tested mates, and puppy buyers to check if the dog they are thinking of buying has come from health-tested parents.

Charlotte McNamara, Head of Health at The Kennel Club said: “We are delighted to attend The Game Fair once again this year, and to be offering this special discount on our DNA Testing Services.

“As well as helping breeders to ensure the dogs they are breeding are healthy and fit for function, those who use the services will also be contributing to driving further understanding of canine genetics and disease, and the development of dog health initiatives, with all data and profits reinvested into research as part of The Kennel Club’s mission for dogs. We hope that breeders and owners make use of these tests and help to make a positive impact on the future generation of dogs.”

To take advantage of the Game Fair discount, owners and breeders can visit our website and select the relevant Breed-Specific Package and enter the promotional code GAMEFAIR15 at checkout.
