Genetic background can influence physical traits, health, and even behaviours in dogs. Today, as a breeder, I am excited to have the ability to test for heritable components. This means breeders can increase positive traits while removing diseases from their lines. Breeders can lower their inbreeding by looking at genetics and not only pedigree. Breeders can breed health and longevity into their lines.

Our Dobermans are tested through Embark (EmbarkVet.com) for more than 170 genetic mutations. Embark also gives us a genetic COI (Coefficient of Inbreeding) allowing us to ensure our dogs are properly matched to create more diversity in the genetics of Dobermans. Embark is a proud partner of the Doberman Diversity Project.

 Many Veterinarians encourage consumers to use caution when evaluated the results of a DTC (Direct-to-Consumer) DNA test and to speak with their Licensed Veterinarian if they have any concerns. Having a mutated gene in a dog’s DNA does NOT mean they have or will develop a disease. The two testable genes for DCM have not been verified through peer-review. This means the genes are found in breeds with no DCM, Dobermans with 2 copies can live into their late teens, and some Dobermans with 0 copies still develop DCM.
