One of my dogs is 3/4 chihuahua 1/4 jack russell. Embark reflected that saying chihuahua and parson type terrier with the right percents, but Wisdom panel percent of chihuahua was too high and added a bunch of extra dogs with common ancestors. Also said American Eskimo just like Wisdom did with my other dog. I thought it was more detailed adding 3 more breeds to the 8 embark showed for him, but now I don't believe the extra 3. Embark Health and traits has more accurate body color, size, and weight descriptions than Wisdom panel premium (this one is just breed, but i got the premium for second dog.) Also Embark health has more relatives and neat extras than wisdom panel premium. This product shown is limited to breeds which have extra that is not right.
Seems like randomly generated breeds this is a joke don’t waste your money on this product. We know our dog as basset golden mix and they said he is 30% Chihuahua it’s a complete joke.
Rescued a puppy to be my new Emotional Support Animal after losing my Esa of almost 13 years. For fun & out of curiosity I ordered the Wisdompanel dna test. Not the "premium" test that allegedly gives you health info too. I was happy just knowing his basic breed information. The animal control center had tagged my puppy as a Jack Russell (mix). I knew he was a terrier mix because I have extensive knowledge of Rat Terriers, Toy Fox Terriers & Jack Russell's. 3 different breeds of Terrier that can look similar. So imagine my surprise when the dna test came back at 33% chihuahua, some Rottweiler, Pit Bull & various other breeds. About 15 of them. I felt that the test had to have been contaminated. I contacted the company directly. I got the run around & they said to get my money back from chewy. Lousy customer service.lousy product.
Another DNA test was unsatisfactory. We used Wisdom Panel and the results were exciting and just what we expected. Our dog looks like a Dingo, and, sure enough, she has a little of 22 different breeds.
Purchased this DNA breed test and ended up being a waste of money. Results told me that my dog was 100% Pekingese but I knew that was false because he has different features than a purebred Pekingese. Decided to purchase the Embark one (although pricier) and found out he’s actually a Cockinese (Pekingese and Cocker Spaniel mix) which seems much more accurate. Should’ve just bought the Embark one in the first place and I would’ve saved my money.
I got Rome knowing his mom was a papered purebred American Staffordshire Terrier but his dad was from the shelter and said to be Am Staff mix. (That story was a little foggy because shelter dogs are typically fixed.) The only disappointment was the breed group is vague and I was told other DNA tests show American Pittbull Terrier and American Staffordshire Terrier as being two different breeds on DNA. On this test it only shows American Staffordshire Terrier. I wasn't expecting my dog to be a purebred so there was no disappointment to get the results. It was so fun to know his breed because he has the personality of a docile Bulldog but looks like an Am Staff except his head is much bigger than a purebred. I would still recommend this and don’t get disappointed when your dog it not what you want them to be just love them for who they are:)
My dog is clearly a pit bull and they said she was a German Shepard and some small dog. Not impressed
I recently adopted a dog from the shelter. He is clearly some sort of Doxie mix. The shelter said Dachshund/Chi but I don't really see much Chihuahua in him so I bought this test. Honestly, I picked this one because it was the cheapest and I had really low expectations. I just thought it would be fun to argue with my friends over the results. We all guessed beforehand and our guesses included 7 different breeds, all reasonable guesses. Today I got my results and ..... drum roll ... Sonic is 37.5% "Who Knows". That's right. They couldn't identity almost 40% of his breeds. They call it "Breed group(s)" but it's basically "we don't know" since the majority of his DNA is supposedly from FOUR different breed "groups" which together encompass 153 different possible breeds. This is more than half the breeds they test against, by the way. If you can't tell what breeds a dog is better than that, you have no business selling DNA kits IMO. I'm kind of sorry I didn't buy the Embark brand since, even if it wasn't more accurate, they will tell you about possible relatives and that would be fun. This was not fun.
These results are very accurate and love how much information they give!!
What is so disappointing are breeders stating that the puppy is Labrador Retriever pure bred. They promise to send AKA papers to show the breed, but you wait and never arrives. Wisdom allowed us to identify she is 75% Labrador and the remainder Golden Retriever. Both with a great history of longevity and health. Both easy to train, a both very smart. That she does display.
