Coat Trait Testing - Curly

A mutation in the keratin 71 gene (KRT71) causes a curly coat. Only one copy of this mutation is required to produce a curly coat, so curly dogs may be carriers of the non-curly trait.

Volume discounts are available for Breeder Clubs, etc. Please contact us for more information.
