The Trailblazer Level donation is a special case in which your dog’s DNA would be sequenced at very high depth, different from the analysis we perform on most dogs. Fewer than 1,000 dogs in the world have ever been sequenced in this way and data from these dogs is incredibly useful for research. For dogs sequenced in this way, owners will receive a special certificate and recognition for great scientific contribution on the website.

As your dog’s DNA is being analyzed, results are the next step for your dog. There’s nothing you need to do at this time. We hope to get breed reports up on the website soon — I’m personally working on this step. Then, plenty more research will follow, with your dog contributing to that research!

Yes, you’ll have to click again for the wait list — I’m sorry for the inconvenience. We will be sending out an email about this situation to everyone soon. We used to send kits out by hand, but have since switched to a third party shipper. On the plus side, kits should be sent out much more regularly now!
