Test Kits

AKC has two types of kits. We offer a Regular DNA test where a $50 processing fee (per dog) is due when the sample is returned to the AKC. We also offer a non-refundable Prepaid DNA Test Kit for only $45 (per dog). You can save $5 per dog by paying in advance.

AKC DNA testing is for purebred AKC registerable breeds only. AKC DNA Profiling is for parentage verification and genetic identity purposes only and does not take the place of AKC registration requirements.

AKC DNA testing DOES NOT determine the following:

  • breed of the dog or whether the dog is purebred
  • genetic health
  • conformation
  • performance ability
  • coat color

DNA Test Kits may be ordered through the AKC Online Store, or by contacting the AKC:

(A $6 shipping and handling fee will be added for all orders made by telephone.)
