Nordic strategy regarding the use of DNA tests in breeding


    The availability of genetic tests for different diseases in dogs has increased dramatically in recent years. For breeders and dog owners, the utility and accuracy of these tests are often difficult to assess. Even though DNA tests offer new opportunities as a tool for breeding, they also imply new questions and challenges. The fact that a genetic test is available for a disease in a breed does not automatically mean that the test is accurate or appropriate to use as basis for breeding decisions.

     


    The Scientific Committee of the Nordic Kennel Union (NKU/VK) has agreed on a common strategy regarding the use of genetic tests in dog breeding. The document should give guidance to breeders and dog owners in the Nordic countries regarding the use of genetic tests.

     

    The information and policy from the Scientific Committee of the Nordic Kennel Union (NKU/VK) regarding the use of genetic tests in dog breeding can be found here.
