Want To Know Your Dog

Tips & Advice → Want To Know Your Dog

Many times dog owners rescue dogs from animal shelters or rescue organizations, and they have no idea what breed the dog is. You may think your dog is part lab, part golden retriever, but you don't really know. Or you may even wonder if your dog is a purebred or why he doesn't like to swim.

The guessing game is over. Now there is a 3-in-1 do-it-yourself DNA test on the market which can identify your dog's breed.

The Wisdom Panel 2.0 from Mars Veterinary is highly accurate in identifying over 200 breeds of dogs and 100% accurate in identifying American Kennel Club registered breeds. All you have to do is swab your dog's cheek, and you'll have an explanation for why your dog looks the way he does or displays certain behaviors.

If you think your dog is purebred, you can identify if the dog's ancestry consists of a single breed over three generations. If you are interested in the background of your designer dog, this dog DNA test will show you whether the dog's profile matches a first generation cross between two purebred dogs from different breeds, which by definition is a true designer dog.

Knowing your dog's background can be helpful in explaining certain behaviors (herding) or if he is prone to certain diseases. Just like people who want to trace their roots, this dog DNA test can tell you the origins of your beloved pet!

How The Dog DNA Test Works

This dog DNA test costs $79.99 and can be purchased at www.wisdompanel.com. You will receive "do-it-yourself" cheek swabs, allowing you to administer the test at home and mail back the sample in a pre-paid package. Within three weeks of receipt of the swab sample, dog owners will be emailed an official Ancestry Report revealing their dog's genetic background.
