Cloning dogs is going to become more popular in the future as costs for cloning are expected to decrease. Many people love their dogs as much as their own family members, and dogs don't have the life expectancy of their human friends and family. Cloning a dog will not bring the exact dog back to life, but it will make an genetic replica. To clone a dog, follow the steps below.
To clone a dog, find a company that has mastered the technique. A Seoul-based company, RNL Bio, has success cloning dogs. The company charged $150,000.00 to clone Bogger, a dog that had died but had helped the owner deal with a disability. The company used ear tissue that had been refrigerated from the dog.

RNL Bio states that the cloning procedure for dogs will become less costly over the next few years costing about $50,000.00 within the next three to four years. If you think you may want to clone a dog, talk with your veterinarian about extracting tissue and freezing it until the costs become affordable. Costs for a tissue extraction are usually $1,000.00, and the costs for storing the tissue run about $120.00 a year.
