Why Get a Dog Breed DNA Test?
There are plenty of great reasons you should consider getting this test for your dog. Firstly, you will be able to understand your pup in a new way when you understand his or her breed. Every dog breed is a little different, and if you know the traits of your dog’s particular breed you can develop a training programme that works specifically for your pup.
Another great reason to get this test done is you will be able to find people who have dogs that will be willing to breed with your dog. Included in your results is documentation specifying the breeds found. This information will also make it easier to sell your pup if you are a breeder who is looking for DNA evidence so that your customers will be happy with their purchase.
The information contained in this test will also help you take better care of your pup in the long run. You will be able to see if they are more likely to get certain diseases, or have any health problems or wellness needs. If you love your pet you obviously want him around as long as possible, and this test will help you achieve that goal.
4 Easy Steps to Receiving Your Comprehensive DNA Report
- Collect the DNA sample
- Activate online
- Post DNA samples to the laboratory
- Receive results report
Taking the DNA sample takes minutes. In your DNA sample collection kit you will receive two cheek swabs (both to be used on one dog), instructions and a pre-paid return envelope to post the samples back to the laboratory.
All you have to do is firmly rub the swabs against the inside of your dog’s cheek to collect a sample of his or her DNA. After samples have been taken you must allow a few minutes for the swabs to dry then place them back in the protective sleeve. While they are drying you can activate your kit online and then use the prepaid return envelope to send the samples to the laboratory. It is that simple!

Important Information for Foreign Dogs
Is your dog from a country outside the mainland US, Canada, Australia, UK or Western Europe?
The Wisdom Panel test was developed using pure breeds primarily from those found on The Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club registry lists. If your dog was imported from a country other than the mainland US, Canada, Australia, UK or Western Europe, or you suspect that your dog’s ancestors are from outside these countries, his breed ancestry may not be well represented in our database.
This is particularly relevant to dogs from Eastern Europe, Greece or the Middle East. Genetic markers of breeds from these countries are not always compatible with the markers in the Wisdom Panel database which could adversely affect the results.
