Permanent identification of dogs, and having that information in an available resource / registry is considered a key component of effective animal control, and is also important in breeding registries. In spite of advances in micro-chipping, this remains an area of challenge. Recent developments in DNA profiling have resulted in organizations putting this forward for more accurate identification of dogs.
