Greater Swiss Mountain Dog – Sponsored Genetic Diversity Test

This research test has been generously subsidized by the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Club of America.  For the research phase, we request that entry be limited to those that have been pre approved by the GSMDCA Health Committee, so please have your assigned GSMD entry number available for input.  If you have yet to receive a GSMD entry number please contact  It is hoped that the pre approval process will provide GSMDs from the widest range of pedigree lines as possible.  Additional entry will be available after the initial research phase sampling is complete.

The world’s best Canine Genetic Diversity Test, from UC Davis’ renowned Veterinary Genetics Lab. Developed by dedicated veterinarians and conservation geneticists specifically to assess genetic diversity in breeds, dogs, and matings.

Individual test results will not be available until after the initial breed analysis, which will be after 30 to 50 dogs, depending on the overall variation found in the breed. After that analysis is released, all test results will be sent to owners and run through the BetterBred conservation genetics algorithms.

After the initial breed analysis, results will be emailed to you from the UC Davis Veterinary Genetics Lab 5-10 days after receipt at the lab.  Results will also be run through BetterBred algorithms at that time and available for public viewing.
