* Get to know your dog's ancestry so you can understand behaviors better
* Shed light on conditions such as predisposition to allergies, heart problems, or genetic disease
* Breed insights help you develop better nutrition, training and wellness plans

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. The Wisdom Panel® 2.0 Breed Identification DNA Test can help reveal your dog's genetic background including:

  • Mixed breed dog: breed ancestry identification back to great-grandparents
  • Purebred dog: breed certification and level of genetic diversity inbreeding
  • Designer dog: certification that your dog is a true 50/50 hybrid of two purebred parents
  • Adult weight range prediction to help you make appropriate nutrition and diet choices
Breed insights to help you provide a better training program, understand behavior, and create an effective care and wellness plan for your pet.

Testing is as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Simply collect a sample from the inside of your dog's cheek with the included swabs.
  2. Activate your kit online and mail the swabs back to our laboratory in the postage-paid envelope.
  3. Within 3 weeks, you'll receive an e-mailed ancestry report with your dog's results.

How does Wisdom Panel work?
Testing your dog with Wisdom Panel 2.0 begins when you use the cheek swabs to simply collect a small DNA sample from inside your dog's cheek and send the swabs into the laboratory. Once your sample is received at our lab it is scanned into our database and assigned to a batch for testing. It then undergoes processing to extract the DNA from your dog's cells which is examined for the 321 markers that are used in the test. The results for these markers are sent to a computer that evaluated them using a program designed to consider all of the pedigree trees that are possible in the last three generations. The trees considered include a simple pedigree with a single breed (a likely pure-bred dog), two different breeds at the parental level (a first-generation cross), all the way up to a complex tree with eight different great-grandparent breeds allowed.
