Dog Poop DNA Matching Program - Training Videos

This section is broken down into several short videos and documentation that will guide you through the entire process of running the Dog Poop DNA program at your property. Carefully watch and read ALL the documentation relevant to your task before starting. Make sure you fully understand how to execute the tasks that you are asked to perform. If you have any questions please call us for help before attempting something you do not understand. A few minutes on the phone will save all of us many hours of cleaning up after careless mistakes.

"Please take this program seriously and do not just assume that you already know what to do. We have properties that had to retest all of their residents dogs because nobody ever bothered to read the swabbing instructions or ask us for help. Not to mention the countless poop samples received that have been unusable because they contained little or no poop. Those costly mistakes are completly preventable by simply watching a few minutes of training videos or giving us a call. We are here to help you, so please ask for help before you make any silly mistakes."

Planning a Swabbing Strategy

   

Gradual Integration - The easiest, simplest and least amount of work with the greatest level of effectiveness. We recomend all that rental properties use the gradual integration model. This is where all new move-ins and lease renewals have to register their dogs, so nobody is asked to register their pets mid-lease or agree to anything that was not in their original lease. This model does not work for COA's or HOA's where there is no anual lease renewal. In those cases, the full integration is required.

(TO BE ADDED) [help pages to be added]

Full Initial Swabbing - Some rental properties choose to register all the dogs to get the program started. In larger communities it it not usually practical but can be done. The biggest issue with this method is getting the exitsing residents to agree to the changes without creating additonal problems for the staff. In smaller communities it can be quite easy and can be acheived by malking appointments either at the leasing office or by having a staff member swab the dogs at the residents apartments.

(TO BE ADDED) [help pages to be added]

Group Swabbing or Scheduling a Dog Registration Day - We DO NOT recomend trying to swab all the dogs on one day. This is not only a huge hassle, it is stressful for the dogs and their owners. There are too many problems for this to work properly and tends to creates cross contamination as well as poor DNA yields resulting and many dogs having to be swabbed again anyway.

Swabbing Dogs for DNA Testing

Understanding the Swabbing Kits (2:45) - The swabbing collection kits comprise an information card, 2 swabs and a pair of gloves. Both swabs must be used and returned with the desiccant packs in place. There is not typically enough DNA on one swab to complete adequate testing, so both must be througly saturated with saliva and buccal cells before retuning them to the tubes. The desiccant packs will dry the swabs and preserve the DNA for long term storage.

When Dogs Do NOT Cooperate (2:40) - Not all dogs will cooperate and some will just seem impossible to swab. You will need to be persistant and work with them patiently along with the owners to get the job done. If you don't get a good sample, we cannot match their poop and you will have to start all over again and again until you finally get it right.

Returning Swabs to The Lab (1:30) - Use the return packaging to send quantities of swabs back to the lab. Swabs can be stored for a month or more before shipping provided they are stored away from sunlight. There is no need to send swabs in the day they are collected, shipping several at one time will save money on postage.
