Brown

Why test for brown (aka chocolate and liver)?

Brown dogs can be found in many different breeds and cross-breeds. Brown dogs are often a beautiful chocolate colour, and have brown instead of black noses.

The brown coat colour in dogs is recessive. This means that some dogs that aren't brown still have the potential to produce brown puppies. It also means that when two brown dogs are bred together, they won't produce any black puppies.

Our brown panel tests for the three known forms of the brown gene. Unfortunately for French Bulldogs this panel can't detect your dark brown yet.

Our brown panel is based on the information and sequences in Schmutz et. al, 2002.
