Questions & Answers

I have two dogs that share a water bowl, and i have read online that that can sway the results. How long would i have to keep the bowls separate in order to get accurate results?
Answer by ChewyDec 07, 2017
We do recommend that you have them drink water from their own water bowl the night before. However, you must ensure that your dog does not eat or drink (other than water) for one hour before starting and has no contact with other dogs (water, toys, mouth) one hour before.

How many breeds are in your data base?
Answer by ChewySep 13, 2017
DNA My Dog recognizes breeds in the most commonly found mixed breed dogs in the North American dog population according to historical trends in dog popularity. The breeds that they detect are the most common breeds you see, such as Labrador Retriever, German Shepherd Dog, Yorkshire Terrier or Chihuahua, for example. These common breeds are the ones most likely to be present in a mixed breed dog or in the increasingly common designer dogs. The rare breeds that are found in the US are unlikely to be present in a regular mixed breed, so breeds like Komondorok, Kuvasz or Wirehaired Pointing Griffon will not be seen in many mixed breed dogs. As the cost and time of performing the Breed ID test goes up as you add more breeds, they decided to include just the most common breeds to keep the price down to meet your needs.

How much does it cost to get the result of the dog dna test?
Answer by ChewyJun 15, 2019
The price of your test encompasses the entire service provided by DNA My Dog, including lab fees.

How accurate is the dna test?
Answer by ChewySep 02, 2017
Experience indicates that approximately 2.3% of all DNA canine testing will yield results that are inaccurate or cannot be interpreted. The reasons for this are that dogs have extremely high levels of oral bacteria which may result in degeneration of the sample before our DNA extraction process commences. Also, the manufacturer believes that our database of validated breeds covers the most common breeds you will find in the mixed breed dog population. If your dog contains DNA from a breed that is not in their database the DNA represented in that part of your dog’s genetics will be assigned to the foundation breed or breeds of your dog or the most closely related breed or breeds. In some cases when the breed is not found the test will report the breed or breeds as unidentified. If you believe your dog to be a breed not in their current database please contact them and they will let you know the status of the breed and discuss your options for testing.

Terrible Results

I have a 35 pound dog who looks to have a lot of blue heeler in her and maybe some australian shepherd among other things. The results I got from this test said that she was part maltese, shih tzu, and silky terrier. As somebody who has owned all three of those dog breeds in the past, I can tell you with complete certainty that if those breeds are present in her, they can only be trace amounts. When I emailed the company about it, they offered to re-test a backup sample that they had. The results from this test were the same except with the additions of yorkie and small amounts of border collie. When I again told them that this was not possible, they would not issue me a refund. If I could give this 0 stars I would. I will attempt to attach a picture of my dog for reference.

This is a joke. Save your money

We adopted a dog where we knew the mother was a black Labrador Retriever but no idea on dad. We assumed pit bull since the dog is a 44 lb short haired, short snout dog. This test could not give us a Level S or a Level 1 - which is fine because I was thinking the dog was 50-50 lab/pit. Well, it came back Level 2 as Dalmatian and nothing else. No Level 3!! For Level 4 is came back Belgian Malinois and Parson Russell Terrier. Look at the picture. Nothing about him says Dalmatian, Belgian Malinois or Russel Terrier.

Try a different product

This product was easy enough to use - just swab your pet's cheek, but results were disappointing. We did get 4 different dog breeds listed in my pet's genetics, but that was it - no email explanation in detail or certificate, even after requesting again. Product says that they send details and certificate, neither of which I received. Disappointed. Spend your money on a different product.

Totally scammed

We finally got our results and it's totally off base. We have a 55 pound, long hair, black with some white markings (border collie looking) etc. Our test said she was Chihuahua and Beagle. I other reviews by customers who had the same terrible experience. Don't trust this company!

Great Experience With DNA My Dog!

I adopted a 5 year old rescue this summer and I was curious to find out if he had any wolf DNA. He is clearly a Siberian Husky but he has a wolfy look. I decided to try this test out of curiosity. It was very easy to follow the instructions. I was contacted via e-mail with a confirmation as soon as they received the test swabs. The results came back in a timely manner and the information was very helpful. They have also checked in after I received the results to see if I have any questions. They've been very helpful every step of the way and I highly recommend their service. The result was that my sweet boy is 100% Siberian Husky so he just happens to have a very wolfy look due to his coloring and build. He's larger than an average Siberian Husky with longer legs which is part of the reason I questioned it. I would have been perfectly happy no matter what his mix. I love purebreds and mixes of all kinds. They are all wonderful and unique souls. I did have a Siberian Husky in the past and was blessed that he was with me for 14 and a half years. I also had 2 White Alaskan Wolf and White German Shepherd mixes from the same parents but 2 different litters so wolf DNA wouldn't have been a problem for me in my new rescue. I also had a Rottweiller Pitbull mix in the past and he was a big muscular sweet teddy bear. My new rescue is a sweetheart too. I've loved every one of them and love to get to know their different personalities. Thank you to DNA My Dog for clarifying my questions.

Great results!!

The wait time was just a little over 2 weeks from when I mailed it, and it came back with a top result of exactly what breed I thought my pup was. What was very interesting is the 3 lesser breeds, but quite frankly, knowing now what they are, I can see each in the way my dog looks and acts. Thank you DNA My Dog!!

We recently rescued a mix, decided to narrow down his breeds since he resembled so many. Two weeks after submitting the sample, they received it, two days later, we had our results. SO EASY!! After having read the reviews on other tests, this one was our choice and would highly recommend it to anyone!!

Purebred Poodle

According my dog's results our dog should be registered with the AKC. They tested the second swab, and came back with poodle and a fraction of schnauzer. Their database must be very limited. I should have spent the extra money with a different testing company.

Lots of great info!

We guessed for years what breeds my dog, Buster was made up of. We knew one of them had to be American Staffordshire Terrier, and were told by his mom's owner that he also had some Shar Pei in him. We had other guesses as well, and I finally decided it was time to figure it out once and for all. This test's results reflected Buster's physical makeup and personality traits to a tee! Major thumbs up!
