The GRCA National Specialty is just around the corner.
Once again, for the 11th consecutive year, there will be a collection of DNA for Optigen testing for: prcd-PRA, PRA1, PRA2, Ichthyosis and DM. Golden Retriever Foundation donates the cost of collection and shipping, and participants pay only Optigen for the cost of the testing. The price for the bundle of the 4 primary tests, is $164. The DM test can be added for an additional $45. The discount is active from Oct. 1-31. If you order less than the full “bundle”, 25% discount will apply to the regular test price. Truly, if you need more than one test, you get the best bang for your buck by just ordering the whole bundle.
You MUST get on the “Master List” by contacting Gerry at G.Clinchy@gmail.com.
You do NOT use the Optigen website to sign up. There is a special form. If not already there, it should turn up there soon. Gerry can also send you the form individually.
If you have new dogs you wish to add to the OFA DNA databank, Golden Retriever Foundation also collects for that at the Specialty and pays the OFA fee for that. So, it is FREE for participants at the Specialty. Gerry has that form, too, if you need it.
Not everyone gets to the Specialty, but you CAN still get the Optigen discount! Contact Gerry for the form.
Sign-up for the Master List begins now!
