Updates for Our Valued Dog Breeder Community
Over the past few months, we have made improvements to the foundation of our products to enable a faster, more flexible, and most importantly, a more reliable platform in the long term.
To provide you with more clarity around what to expect from us in the coming months, we want to share some key updates:
We’re excited to announce the launch of a new feature: the Technical Report. This report is a printable PDF, and is available at the bottom of your pet’s Summary page. It includes detailed information about traits (including individual variant genotypes), genetic disorders, and is acceptable for OFA submissions.
- For users with dogs tested before 8/26/2020, we plan to transition away from the PDF archive results to the new web experience early in 2021. The new web experience will include the Genetic Diversity and the Technical Report features.
- Due to the technical complexity of supporting the Breeder Tool for our large breeder base, it will not be available in the immediate future. We know the Breeder Tool is important, and we are exploring ways to bring this functionality to our users in future updates and will keep you apprised as more information is available.
We are committed to keeping you informed of important changes and milestones moving forward. And because we are dedicated to advancement in this area, we are excited to share that we have committed to putting $100,000 toward research with the breeder community in 2021.
Our goal is to work closely with the dog breeding community to help identify genetic variants that are important for ensuring the continued health and welfare of your breeding program through DNA testing. We welcome any thoughts and ideas you would like to share on how we can best serve you.
We are deeply grateful for your support. We wish you a safe and healthy holiday season.
