: Both the University of Minnesota and the University of Bern offer a genotyping test for LEMP, as well as several other genetic conditions in dogs, in their respective laboratories. None of the authors gain financially from the proceeds of these tests, which all go to support ongoing canine genetic research. Non-financial competing interests of authors from both Universities include informal advisory relationships concerning use and interpretation of genetic testing, as well as financial support for the research, from non-profit organizations that include the Leonberger Health Foundation (USA), the International Leonberger Union, and the Swiss and German Leonberger Clubs.
