Is your toy dog distracted by scents, making it hard to get him to obey, no matter how hard you try? Maybe he's got some hound in him! Does your normally prim-and-proper longhaired pooch go nuts when there's water around? Maybe one of her great grandparents was a Labrador Retriever! When you know and understand your dog's roots, you can accommodate his or her natural tendencies, and plan training and fun that you'll both enjoy, cementing the bond between you. Or if you're wondering if you have a purebred dog or think you have a purebred, but don't have the papers, now you can be sure.
Your dog's heritage influences him in surprising ways. Physical traits, to be sure, come from your dog's ancestry, but behaviors like digging, herding, the love of swimming, and barking can all come from various breeds in a canine's family tree.
Over 25 million mixed-breed dog owners know their dogs...but not as well as they could. With Wisdom Panel® Insights™ Mixed Breed Identification Kit you can find out with the simple swipe of a cheek swab. Wisdom Panel Insights kits can determine the ancestry of a mixed-breed dog by testing for more than 190 breeds - that's the largest database on the market. With the results (emailed in about 3 weeks), you can go about improving the bond between yourself and your dog, because you'll know that certain behaviors are innate, so you can create a targeted and effective behavior training plan.
Wisdom Panel® Insights™ Purebred DNA Certification Test Kit evaluates the genetic patterns within your dog compared with the genetic signatures observed in our 150-breed database of known purebred dogs. Wisdom Panel has more than 9,500 purebred dog samples in their database! The test works the same as the cheek-swab Mixed Breed test, only the report you receive includes a cluster-based analysis of your selected breed and dogs from the other breeds in our purebred database (called a Principal Component Analysis or PCA analysis), and a Breed Heritage Ancestry Certificate.
As easy as 1, 2, 3!
Purebred Certification Test results include ancestry chart, with breed-likelihood of parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, information on your dog's detected breed, a PCA cluster analysis chart, and a Breed Ancestry Certificate. Sorry, this certificate does not take the place of any kennel club's required papers for showing or obedience.
You do everything you can to improve your dog's quality of life. A DNA test is just one tool you can use to ensure your dog's health and happiness.
