Everyone has to start somewhere. if your bitch of choice to breed to does not have parents with DNA on file, offer to pay for it. If the breeders resist... do not buy the pup. The ADBA provides us with a way to put our money where our mouth is. We may as well use it.
Right now for you, DNA on file would mean that if he were stolen and you knew where he was, you could PROVE that he was yours and the police would get involved... you wouldn't be just another "I lost my dog" person.
There are ways to cheat, with anything... but it becomes harder and harder when others DNA their dogs. So, if a fellow DNA types the wrong dog, let's say because he was old when collected and he needed a "stand in", one day, the pups that were really sired by him would be different than the pups sired by the "stand in".
More importantly, it shows people that you can't lie. I believe this is the big reason people do not want to place DNA on file. Lies told will come to the surface.
The analysis is done by Amy Greenwood (or was... things change). She has known these dogs for her lifetime, and I think she would do a great job. She did a very nice job for Chaos brother.
I place DNA on file when I plan to breed the dog. If I had one or two, they would have DNA on file as absolute proof of ownership.... and a chip. I did some freeze branding in the past. This made an impact on people, they could see that the dog had a clear sign of ownership. Not a bad idea. The only problem is that a dog needs to have it held to their skin longer than a horse, and it gets a little uncomfortable. Anyone can do this, buy a freezebrand and brand their dogs.
Character is doing the right thing when nobody is looking.
