DNA testing for health and appearance genes in dogs
Learn about one of the tests we do: Coat length L2
Most long-haired dogs carry the common (L1) version of the length gene. Dogs with Akita, Siberian husky or Samoyed breeding can carry L2 instead or as well as L1.
The common (L1) and L2 length tests are both included in our shedding panel. Long hair on the couch is much more obvious than short hair!
Gene or region and technical reference
