Mixed Breed Identification Test

Over 25 million mixed-breed dog owners know their dogs...but not as well as they could. With the simple swipe of a cheek swab, Wisdom Panel® Insights can determine the ancestry of a mixed-breed dog by testing for more than 185 breeds, the largest database on the market. Within three weeks, dog owners will be e-mailed an official Ancestry Report that reveals the dog's genetic background.

A dog's ancestry can influence him in surprising ways. Obvious and not-so-obvious physical traits plus behaviors like digging, herding and barking all come from the various breeds in a dog's family tree. Once an owner understands a dog's natural tendencies, it makes it possible to create a tailored training, exercise and nutrition program to fit

What will my dog's report tell me?

Wisdom Panel® Insights detects the breeds in your dog's ancestry. Your report can be interpreted in the following way:
  • Parent:
    • A breed that represents approximately 50% of your dog's DNA. You are likely to see the most physical and behavioral traits from this breed. Dogs with mixed-breed parents will not have a breed represented at this level.
  • Grandparent:
    • A breed that represents approximately 25% of your dog's DNA. You may see some physical and behavioral traits from this breed. Dogs with a very mixed ancestry may not have a breed represented at this level.
  • Great-Grandparent:
    • A breed that represents approximately 12.5% of your dog's DNA. You are unlikely to see many traits from this breed unless they are dominant. When you understand your dog's natural tendencies, you can tailor a training, exercise and nutrition program to his needs.
