How GTPs Can Participate in the Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs

    Here we offer information for Genetic Testing Providers (GTPs) that wish to participate in the Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs (HGTD).

    Thank you for your interest in participating in the Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs (HGTD). We are glad that your organization, as a Genetic Testing Provider (GTP), recognizes the importance of supporting breeders, veterinarians and owners in accessing robust genetic testing that promotes health improvements and a sustainable future for healthy dogs.

    Benefits of Participation in the HGTD initiative include:
    * Improving consumer confidence in DNA testing
    * Supporting breeding practices to reduce inherited diseases and promote healthy dogs
    * Furthering scientific understanding of inherited diseases
    * Providing a comprehensive catalogue of hundreds of phenes

    The HGTD Database
    The first phase of the HGTD catalogues Genetic Testing Providers (GTPs), describing a spectrum of characteristics of ‘quality’ and information on tests, by breed. By participating, you will be helping to build a robust and transparent resource that will inform stakeholders on the availability of genetic testing, the quality of those offerings, and a description of the GTPs.

    Participating is Easy!
    You can start by contacting us using the information below. We will then support you through the process of adding your data and information to our HGTD database. You can help us further by encouraging other colleagues and labs to participate in the HGTD, or by or sending us suggestions of potential GTP contacts.


    To participate, or for further information on the HGTD initiative, please contact Project Director, Aimee Llewellyn-Zaidi, at aimee.llewel or Dr. Brenda Bonnett at
