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?

the one star was forced in order to submit

After a month, the results I see because I kept checking the website, NOT because the company emailed me results, are ALL THE WAY OFF. I have a terrier mix, 8 lbs who this “test” states is 100% miniature poodle. Laughable. And the description should spell out that this particular test doesn’t include genetic age (which was what I was most interested in and I wouldn’t believe at this point anyway). Can’t get a human on the phone to ask questions. I’m disappointed and the only recommendation I can make is do NOT purchase.

Trash of a test

It said results in 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I got a notice that they received my tests and I should have results in 2 weeks. So I guess their results in 2 weeks actually means a month. Their results show my dog should be a big dog, which he is tiny, so the results are inaccurate.

Baxter’s Momma

Honestly, I cannot believe my f@(&!”& eyes. This company is complete BS. The results are taken like they’re calling out bingo numbers. Absolutely ridiculous test results. These tests are this cheep for a reason. I doubt the company even has a microscope. 0/10. Do NOT recommend this product.

Mixed Breed Terrier

We adopted Zoey from a local shelter and we were always asked, what is she? We decided to do a DNA test. She turned out to be 40 to 60% Terrier and 40 to 60% Border Collie. We were a little surprised on the Border Collie. It sure explains her looks and personality. Great product and wonderful customer service! We would highly recommend !!

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.

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.

Test results were totally false.

Don't waste your money on this test. The results were inaccurate. My dog weighs 10 lbs. Results said she was 100% golden retriever weighing 65 - 75 lbs. How is this possible?????

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.

Don't waste your money

Go with embark or wisdom panel. This kit told me my dog was a purebred (he's definitely not). The other kits told me he's 16 different breeds which makes way more sense. This was a waste of money.

DNA test for a rescue dog

Instructions were good and the test easy to do. Waiting for results. My dog Khloe is a rescue so interested in her DNA.
