DNA typing is​​ required​​ for all Salukis seeking registration with SPDBS in the following circumstances:​​ 

The Saluki is imported into the United States from any other country.​​ A copy of the DNA certificate shall be filed with the Registrar prior to the issuance of a permanent CRN.

​​ 2)​​ The Saluki is bred from.​​ A copy of the DNA certificate of the sire and dam shall be filed with the Registrar prior to the issuance of a litter registration.

If the sire is unknown or if multiple sires are used, each dog that could be the sire​​ 

shall be DNA typed, and each puppy in the resulting litter shall be DNA typed to determine the sire of  ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ each puppy. A copy of the DNA certificate of each individual sire and puppy shall be filed with the Registrar prior to​​ the issuance of a litter registration.  


3) Fees for DNA typing are the responsibility of the Saluki owner requesting SPDBS registration services.​​ 
Fees for any​​ subsequent​​ SPDBS​​ DNA services​​ shall be set by the Board of Directors and published.

) All​​ DNA typing shall be performed through the AKC DNA program.


Because both sire and dam must have DNA on file with the SPDBS Registrar prior to​​ the​​ registration of​​ a litter, SPDBS strongly recommends that DNA kits be collected and submitted to AKC for processing at the time of the breeding.  ​​​​
