FAQ’s and Answers
Can the cloned dog reproduce?
A : Canine cloning is just a way of reproduction to produce genetically identical twins as common in nature. Their growth and development is not different than any other ordinary puppies. When they are sexually mature, they can be bred to produce normal liters with ordinary partner or another cloned dog. The cloned pup’s DNA makeup is the same as original dog but comes with different mitochondrial DNA which can be inherited only from the mother in nature and egg donors in case of cloning.
What is the percentage of genetics and training that transfers from the cloned canine?
A : This question sound like a question of genetic trait vs. trainability. If the training ability of a working dog is solely depending on their genetic traits, then it should be guaranteed for their characteristics, physical resemblances, and temperaments in a cloned puppy. However, it is hard to predict whether they can be successful or not in their final phase of selection and certification process. We hope to show proven evidence that the cloned puppy from the top grade working dog groups will pass the test with more than 80% success rates throughout the entire process. This process compared with the judging criteria under the consideration of same condition, environment, facility, and trainer etc.
What is the average # of pups per litter?
A: We are trying to carefully control the average litter size 1-3 pups per surrogate. We prefer to establish 1-2 pups per surrogate to minimize the growth and size difference among same litters in order to produce the best puppy. This will also avoid a possible factor to make them different under the influence of applied physiology, nutrition and metabolism during fetal development in surrogates.
What happens to the litter mates that do not make the selection process?
A : We need to open an adoption program for the litters who don’t make the selection process. Each individual will be needed to adopt a foster home or a retirement facility when it comes under the laws of animal welfare rights to meet the international standard.
What are the chances of cloning taking away medical issues (cancer, hip dysplasia etc)?
A : If the original dog is sick or suffered because of the genetic mutants or defects, it is very difficult to avoid in clones. Therefore, we have to carefully monitor and screen their genetic information before putting into a cloning program.
What types of guarantees are covered with the cost of cloning?
A : We guarantee a full year for their health condition. If we fail to establish the pregnancies or the birth of healthy pups, we will redo the process at no extra cost. We will also cover all expenses incurring from nurturing of cloned puppy and its physical checkup until adoption or one month after the quarantine requirement period of the intended location of adoption. Expenses may include, but not limited to: medical treatments, foods, ultrosonography imaging, photography, video filming, implantation of microchip, standard vaccination and deworming services, DNA tests, rabies antigen titer tests, methods of transportation and relevant equipment for delivery of cloned puppy and necessary application fees (e. g. health certificate, quarantine, customs, etc.)
