A dog can be DNA'd for a number of reasons. If a dog sires more than three litters in a year, or more than seven in his lifetime, the AKC requires that he be DNA'd for their Frequently Used Sires database. An imported dog must be DNA'd to be bred. In cases of a miltiple sire litter, the sires, dam and puppies are all DNA'd. If there is a question about the parentage of a dog, they and they parents are DNA'd. You can have your dog DNA'd just for the heck of it.
