Kennel Club
This test is part of the Official UK Kennel Club DNA Testing Scheme in Schipperke.

for UK registered dogs, Laboklin can send results of the tests which are part of the Official UK Kennel Club DNA testing scheme to the Kennel Club (KC) to be recorded and published as part of the Kennel Club scheme. Results will only be recorded and published by the KC if the result report includes the dog’s microchip or tattoo number along with either the dog’s registered name or registered number. Any test results that do not carry these identifying features will not be recorded by the Kennel Club.

In order to ensure that test results are sent to the Kennel Club, customers must also sign the declaration section on the order form to give Laboklin permission to do so.

important: When you sign the declaration, Laboklin will send the results to the KC on your behalf, and you do not need to send them to the KC yourself again to avoid unnecessary duplications.

Description

this test enables you to identify if a dog is docked or has a natural short tail. This conditioned is caused by the Brachyury mutation, the trait of inheritance is autosomal dominant which means that one copy of the mutation is enough to cause the natural short tail. Dogs with two copies of the normal gene will have normal tail. No dogs were found to have two copies of the mutation because it is thought that embryos with two copies of the mutation T/T are either die in the womb and reabsorbed by the bitch resulting in smaller litter size, or they die shortly after birth.

Please note that the Short tail phenotype includes either a complete lack of vertebrae or a short tail with variable length. The test does not differentiate between tailless and stumpy tail

Possible results:

Normal (N/N): The dog has two copies of the normal gene and will have a normal tail. Heterozygous (N/T): The dog carries one copy of the normal gene and one copy of the mutant gene; the dog has a natural short tail. Heterozygous dogs can pass the mutation to their offspring with a probability of 50%.

Homozygous for the mutation (T/T): does not exist and thought to be lethal.

Research found that there is no association between the bobtail mutation and the short tail phenotype in the following breeds: Boston Terrier, English Bulldog, King Charles Spaniel, Miniature Schnauzer, Parson Russell Terrier, Rottweiler.
