I had wanted to do a DNA test for a while but never did. With a serious cancer diagnosis I wanted to test my dog before his time was up. Shipped and arrived fast. It only took 10 days from the time Wisdom Panel received the sample to when they posted results. We knew what our dog was mixed with (Pit and Catahoula) though we didn't know exact percentages. Wisdom Panel told us exactly what he was (what we knew he was) and even told us some extra breeds (small percentages) which was interesting! I have since got 2 more puppies and plan on getting them both the essential dna test. I would recommend this to anyone!
I was worried based on the reviews but I am very happy I did this test on my dogs, after getting the results. I have an old dog that showed up ten years ago as a stray. I always was curious as to what she was. She looks like a giant Pom but acts like a herding dog so I thought corgi. After getting the results it made all the sense in the world, 38% mini american shepherd, 20% chow, 19% australian shepherd (and then several others). It also detected MDR1 medication sensitivity. After looking into that, I think that is where her seizures come from. Over the years, I have felt that medicine was causing it. I stopped flea meds and it made a huge difference. Just crazy that the test picked up on this. I got the test primarily for a new puppy that I rescued from a local shelter. Turns out, he is nearly a pure bred (American Staffordshire Terrier and American Pit Bull Terrier). Very cool test. (I did not submit pictures of my dogs because I was worried it may influence the results.) I would do this again.
I was sold a supposed AKC German Shepherd but after 4 months she looks nothing like one. This test is highly rated and Chewy had it at a price way lower than other sites. We did the test and mailed it back. It was 4 days later when we got an email telling us they had her samples and would be working on the samples and would be in touch in 2 to 3 weeks. We are anxious to see what the test tells us. Thanks Chewy for the highest rated test at the lowest price
Got the kit quickly. Directions are easy to understand, simple to use, then simply send back. We have not gotten the results yet though. Says it will take 2 - 3 weeks. Gave 4 stars b/c we do not have anything to compare it to.
Just got the results. The taking of Buddy's DNA was easy and easy to send in. The results came sooner than expected. I am glad I found out about the mixture of breeds in Buddy's family history.
This test is not accurate. My dog is not 100% Shiba Inu. We got him as a mini husky and saw his siblings and parents. He’s the only one that’s cream color, but his siblings were white and gray husky colors. My dog’s 1 eye is blue and he’s white and cream. He’s bigger in size a bit than a Shiba. He could be a mix of several breeds and that’s what we wanted to find out. But this test just showed us 100% Shiba Inu and his whole family line as Shibas….
The vet's quote for my dog's DNA test was high. I turned to Chewy for a quote, and to my delight, I saved 44%! The kit arrived on the second day with instructions so simple I mailed it to the lab on the third day.
We just adopted a rescue pup and curious about her breed, we completed the Wisdom Breed Discovery kit. Getting the swab sample was tricky as she was not very cooperative (it fell on the ground during the process). Apparently the lab was able to overcome whatever contamination occurred and we received our results in 2 weeks. I believe the accuracy is true as the results seem quite relatable to her looks and behavior. Highly recommend Breed Discovery kit. It provided a lot of data as well as some close and extended relatives.
It did not give me specific breed mix only what group (sporting, etc). I had to buy another brand and got what I needed. This was a waste of my money.
I am quite interested in finding out Dakota's breeds. The DNA test is finally available for dogs and many dog owners want to know. Test kit quite easy to use
