The GSDCA-WDA encourages all members to obtain DNA certification of their dogs by taking advantage of the American Kennel Club's well maintained DNA program. (The AKC requires DNA certification of AKC registered stud dogs.) AKC keeps the DNA of your dog on file. AKC pedigrees generated after the dog has been DNA certified will note the DNA Certification and Number. For dogs DNA’d after the AKC has generated the pedigree, the DNA information can be added and certified by GSDCA-WDA office. To do so, you will need to do the following:
Note: Please keep copies of the documents for your records. The GSDCA-WDA will not be responsible for documents lost in the mail.
The original AKC pedigree will be returned to you via Certified U.S. Postal Service.
