   DNA Clinic

In 2013 the GWPCA board made the historic decision to require a DNA number for the National Specialty and National Field Event entries for any dog 2 years of age or older. This decision goes into effect with the upcoming 2014 Nationals and is in-line with many other AKC pointing dog parent clubs that already require DNA for their national events. We know this new requirement could be an inconvenience for many participants but we hope you see the benefits of this new directive. To help ease the financial burden and to make DNA test kits readily available to all GWP owners the GWPCA has an agreement with the AKC to offer a discounted DNA clinic. For a limited time only you can purchase DNA test kits for a discounted price of $35.00, this is $10.00 off the normal retail price of $45.00 found on the AKC website. Please complete the attached order form and get your DNA test kit today. The deadline to receive this discount is June 1st.
Note: All order forms and payments will be mailed to Angie Johnson at 1450 Marker Rd., Polk City, FL 33868. Once 15 test kits have been received a packet will be sent to the AKC to render payments and to mail DNA test kits directly to individuals from the AKC. The last order can be placed on June 1, 2014. The AKC has a 6 week turn-around once the completed DNA test is mailed to them. Since these are prepaid test kits the completed sample submission form with the sample must be returned.
