The Kennel Club has recently approved a number of DNA testing schemes for different breeds this year.

The schemes involve collaboration between the Kennel Club, Breed Clubs and the DNA testing facility.

The Kennel Club now records results for the following DNA tests and breeds:

Results for these DNA tests can be accessed via the Health Test Results Finder on the Kennel Club website.

The Worldwide Canine DNA Test List on the Kennel Club website includes all available DNA tests carried out by Kennel Club approved laboratories for each breed. This list also specifies whether the Kennel Club records results for the test and which laboratories carry them out.
