Doggie DNA testing is not just for pedigree anymore.  It is being used to match man’s best friend with the man who did not pick up after his best friend.  It is linking dog poop with dog owners.

While most dog DNA testing has been used to trace breeds, a new market is emerging on the grounds of property owners’ associations, where unseemly piles have mounded into complaints.  According to one Orlando property owner association executive director, the DNA testing of fecal samples is less costly than hiring a crew to clean up the ‘amenity deck’ twice a day.

DNA testing of humans has freed at least 300 people who were imprisoned for crimes they did not commit.  DNA testing with dogs could now be used to try to leverage fines and possible eviction of people.
