Hi Al,

First I want to share with you the video instructions that we provide on the consent form. It will show you the collection process visually an go through the steps verbally. I would highly advise watching the video first and then reading through the instructions provide! 🙂

1.) Take the swab out of the packaging, making sure to not touch the sponge at other end
2.) Place the sponge in the dogs mouth where saliva naturally pools for 30 sec
3.) Take the sponge off of the tube by twisting the green cap ( avoid spilling solution)
4.) Place the sponge into the blue/purple solution and twist tight (solution is non-toxic, stabilizes DNA)
5.) Invert the test tube for 10 seconds so that sponge is soaked by solution
6.) Seel tube in bio-collection bag & send back to Darwin’s Dogs
