A prepaid AKC DNA Kit costs $50 (per dog). This test provides 201 markers for genetic identity, which is used for parentage verification.

Don’t forget to activate your kit on the DNA Online Portal prior to mailing your sample directly to the AKC DNA Program’s service provider.

If you do not have access to the internet to activate your kit, please contact AKC DNA at 919-816-3508 for further instructions on how submit your sample.

The current non-barcoded AKC DNA Kits (both prepaid and regular $50 kits) are being phased out. These “legacy” AKC DNA Kits will still be accepted for processing. The original procedure of mailing the sample, payment and completed forms directly to AKC DNA Operations will still be required for processing these old-style, non-barcoded kits.

AKC DNA Kits may be ordered through the AKC Shop, or by contacting the AKC:

(A $7 shipping and handling fee will be added for all orders made by telephone.)
