Wisdom Panel Breed Identification Dog DNA Test is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more reliable than shelter guesses. Not to be mean but when we adopted our first rescue we were told he was a pitbull lab mix... which made no sense as he wasn't as smart as a lab or pitbull and was much larger than both breeds. I guessed he was a boxer mix due to his build and his habits (which we trained him out of) of standing and using his paws on everything. My husband guessed bulldog because, while his legs were well formed and he looked nothing like a bulldog, he would take a bulldog stance with his front legs when alerted. Well it turned out that we were both right, to my surprise. Now this was just a fun thing to try for me that I asked for as a Christmas present but it was really fun. Now I have nothing against the breeds that get lumped in as pitbulls but it does feel like that blanket title is spreading and that bothers me. I also felt like it made people less paranoid about him... which is funny since he was still obviously descended from 2 different bully breeds. Now the test itself is easy and the results came back with a simple view and a more complex one that guessed at the "mixed breed" title. These tests use markers that are unique for different breeds (following breed standard) and therefor if your pooch lacks any distinctive markers the results will be weak. Dog breeds are artificial after all (human created) therefor if you remove selective breeding from humans you'll end up with something else. If your dog comes back mutt of a mutt of a mutt then you don't need to worry about breed specific things like unnaturally high prey drive in terriers or a need to dig in dachshunds or herding instincts in a border collie... and so forth. These are all examples of traits that were selectively bred for in addition for looks in the creation of breeds. More reliable than the guessing games shelters have to play and if I could I'd do a test for every dog we foster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product They recommended this to me at Petsmart and I'm very grateful they did. I thought my dog was a German Shepherd mix, as that is what he appeared to be. It turns out he is mostly a Rottweiler/Labrador retriever mix. The test came back sooner than I thought it would, which is a plus. Was expected to take up to three weeks, as said by the website but only took eight days. All in all, I'm very happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT!!! Dog #1 we were told was: Beagle/Rotti- DNA test came back: retriever/lab/shepherd ( makes much more sense) #2 we were told was: Lab- DNA test came back: lab #3 we were told retriever mix- DNA test came back lab/husky/wire hair pointer. ( I dont see the pointer but its in there) #4 we were told was: Beagle- DNA test came back beagle. we are getting ready to do #5. We were told: Jack russell/cocker. I think its something else but i TRUST this DNA test!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was a skeptic In July 14, I adopted a young lady. The shelter had no idea what kind of dog she was...their best guess was a wire haired terrier. When asked what I wanted for Christmas, I said a DNA test kit for Falyn. I followed the direction...with no cooperation from Falyn, of course! In less than 3 weeks, I had the results! After seeing the results, it was so clear from the features, mannerisms and markings what she had in her! I am the proud owner of a Russell Terrier/Parson Russell Terrier/Maltese/Australian Shepherd! It's amazing how close they got, without ever seeing a picture!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had the Wisdom DNA test on my dog and I can highly recommend it. I thought my dog was an Australian Cattle Dog mix and wondered what she was mixed with. It came back that sh was an Australian Kelpie, which she did look much more like. They had no idea what breed when I had it done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from wont identify a mutt I bought this kit thinking I would be able to identify what kind of dog I rescued last year. Mars Veterinary (makers of the wisdom panel kit) could only tell me that my dog was 1/16th this and 1/16th that, and only 1/4 of that DNA was identifiable. They said because she is a mutt, her parents, grandparents and great grandparents were mutts, their system couldn't discern anything more. This may be a great idea to confirm that your purebred dog is in fact a purebred, but dont be looking for any help figuring out what you got from the pound... I know no more about the dog I adopted now than I did $80 ago, and getting a refund from them is like pulling teeth...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Accurate We adopted a shelter pup two years ago. All they could say was terrier. Pretty vague considering the number of terrier breeds that exist. DNA came back 50% Carin Terrier (definitely accurate) and the other 50% is Whippet mix (don’t really see that). Anyone who sees our guy thinks he’s a Carin Terrier. We just adopted another puppy today and again the shelter doesn’t know. They think she’s a Dachshund mix. Could be but I’m skeptical. We’ll soon see.

The description says there are two cheek swabs so can two dogs be tested w one test or are both needed for the one dog ? 

Asked by: Le8145
You have to do both for one dog. The only reason there are 2 swabs is so they can be really accurate

How long does it take for the results to come back. My vet tested my dog on September 22nd and I still have not received anything. 

Asked by: Mariah lee

If my dogs are a mixture of breeds (a mutt essentially) will it tell me what which breeds my dogs have or will it just tell me it’s a mix that can’t be decoded? They are both mixes and I don’t want to spend $89 to get a simple they are mixes answers 

Asked by: Dreadmandakota
Depends on the % of the mix. They review your dog's DNA going back several generations, but if the great grandparents were mixes, they may be able to only give you % of a breed.

The test comes with two swabs and we have two dogs. Can we test for both, or only allowed one test per package?

Asked by: Rere17
One dog per package. They include 2 swabs to ensure accuracy.

Do you have to tell them what kind of dog you have. Or is it done only by DNA. With no pictures or information if so it may be worth it

Asked by: Corr
No, you don't tell them any information about your dog. You simply swab the inside of their mouth, fill out your info (so they can send you the results), and that's it.

can this tell me if my dog was inbred or line bred ?

Asked by: jamiee
No, I do not believe so. It can tell you the breed but cannot tell you which lines within the breed your dog is descendent from.

Will we have to send the test off or can we find out what breed/beeds our dog has in it.

Asked by: Gtroxe3
Unless you have your own lab.... The kit is simply a swab that you use to get a sample from inside the dog’s cheek. You mail it to their lab and they send you the results.
