The Dog Aging Project provides free DNA Kits to members of Foundation, Precision, and TRIAD. If your dog has been invited to join one of these cohorts and if you have signed the Informed Consent Form acknowledging that you agree to the study requirements for participation, you will be able to request a DNA Kit through your personal portal.
The task will appear on the To-Do List in your portal. This task asks you to confirm or update the mailing address at which you would like to receive the DNA Kit. Changing your address in this task will update your primary address in our records as well.
Due to the constraints of the study, we need to complete all genetic analyses in a timely way. Please note that your ability to obtain a DNA Kit will expire after 40 days. If you haven’t requested your kit by this date, it will be necessary for us to remove your dog from the research cohort. Your dog will, however, continue to be a valuable member of the Dog Aging Project Pack for as long as you want to remain involved.
