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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!!
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.
TERRIFIC experience! Prompt service, good communication, thorough reports. Finally found out my georgeous rescue mutt's breed make-up.
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!
