Questions & Answers

29 Customer Questions

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.

Does your DNA test require a photo of the dog?

Easy and accurate!

June is a recent (2023) rescue dog, and while we had some visual ideas of what her breeds might be, we decided to DNA test her for more information. While we were waiting for the DNA test results, we in her human family wrote down our guesses. Pretty much everyone was right with Border Collie, and her Dog Mom correctly picked Rat Terrier, but the fun surprise was Belgian Malinois, a dog we have experience with often as a K9 officer. June's excellent sense of family guarding and deep authoritative bark must come from here, she's a small-medium girl with a Big Voice which she doesn't overuse. Her BC herding and RT digging instincts are on full display as well. The test was easy to do, the results are fun to read and we feel much more confident in understanding June's innate drives and abilities. She's got a high prey drive, is not food oriented, is very smart and likes a job to do. She has an active human family who are dedicated to her Best Life of outdoor adventures.

Results definitely inaccurate

My puppy's results from this product were Australian Cattle dog, Boxer, Mastiff and Cane Corso. My vet also ran Wisdom Panel, and it came back with 47% Australian Cattle dog, 3% Australian Shepherd, and the other 50% were small breeds like Chihuahua, Cocker Spaniel, Pomeranian, and actually fit better with her size and what her parents look like.

Way off...feel it was a rip off

This is just not believable at all....my dog above is 36% Siberian Husky and has 10% Malinois? No signs of Rhodesian Ridgeback or Visla or Lab or anything remotesly like my dog in looks or personality!!? (Vet and trainers guess- Trainer laughed at results) Waste of $$ Go to a better evoiewed company, I should have done my homework...

Not accurate at all

OMG. I got the results for my pup today. I waited a month and a half to finally be given a totally inaccurate result. We adopted my pup at 3 months old weighing 22 pounds. I immediately ordered a kit to find his closest breeds. After a month of no notifications I texted dnamydog and they couldn't find my pups dna. They sent out another kit and then texted me the next day telling me they found my pups dna sample and they cancelled the code for the new kit they sent me. So here we go again waiting for the results. During my waiting time my dog is now 4 1/2 months weighing 28 pounds and growing daily. My results you ask? 59% Yorkshire Terrier and the other 2 smaller percentages he was classified Toy Fox Terrier and Silky Terrier! Maybe somewhere long ago he could have had them in his DNA but if you're familiar with those 3 breeds, they are fairly tiny and the fur is very soft and sometimes very fine. My pup's fur is the opposite of those breeds and he is a hairy bulldozer. The company asked me if I followed procedures correctly which after reading the instructions 5 or more times and taking extra precautions for a clean sample, I definitely did due diligence. So I am back to where I was, not knowing squat about my pup. Luckily there are other DNA companies out there which I can try again. Wish me luck, my pup is highly squirmy and strong so getting another clean sample is going to be the challenge.

Wasted money

I think this is more of a conversation starter than an accurate dna result. We had this test run and one breed we are sure of didn’t even show up on the results. When I questioned the company about it they didn’t respond back to us. Don’t waste your money.

Extremely Inaccurate

We tried this for both our puppies who are siblings. We said we did not know the parents' breeds, but we actually did. We just wanted to find the specifics. This product got it almost entirely wrong! Try Wisdom Panel. It's a comparable price, and much more accurate!

The test arrived fast and the results were quick. But after receiving the results I am very disappointed. I tried testing my schipperke that we got from the SPCA. We know he has schipperke and was excited to find out what other breed he is mixed with. Only to be sadly disappointed with results. Schipperke wasn’t even listed in results. Only Pomeranian and basenji were listed. And I’m very doubtful.

Easy DNA TEsting

This test was very easy, the most difficult part was keeping the dogs separated so cross contamination did not occur. Separation only required an hour but we did an overnight. You just swab the inside of the cheek and gum, put the swab back in the package and mail off. We are awaiting results and can't wait to see what our rescue is mixed with.

Not accurate results

I tested a dog that I knew the breeds to use as my "control" group, to see if this test was accurate. They were only 50% correct. They only got it half right. When I asked them to run the second swab, the did, but it came back as the same inaccurate results. I wasn't surprised. Use a different DNA testing company. It is worth the extra money to get accurate results.

Don’t get it

I have a wiener dog mix and I took the test two times and both were not accurate! My dog is 3 years old and 20 pounds (fully grown) it came back first time he was a Newfoundland, second time he was a mix of 3 large breed dogs all over 60 pounds. Not accurate
