My daughter-in-law had wisdom panel run the DNA test on their dog. The findings were 99% wrong. The 1% is chihuahua. She could have 1% chihuahua. I know dog breeds and this little (less than 20") is not pit bull, boxer, staf. terrior, dobbie, GSD, great pyr, collie, lab, golden or chow. Basinji is the closest we could come up with but they don't agree.
After reading countless reviews on Wisdom and Embark, I chose the Wisdom Essential kit. I tested at 4:00 am after my puppy had been crated all night. I made sure that she hadn't had access to food, shared toys or shared water bowl since 9:00 the night before. I didn't want to risk her sample being contaminated by my three Chihuahuas. The kit was easy to use despite my rambunctious, teething puppy wanting to chew the swabs. I mailed it on a Wednesday and USPS showed the kit as being delivered to the Wisdom PO box on Saturday. Monday morning I received an email from Wisdom stating that they had received her kit. From there it took 7 business days to receive the results. After reading so many mixed reviews, I was a little unsure that the results would be accurate. When registering the kit, I only gave her age, sex and that she was spayed. I did not include a photo. She was from a litter of 9 puppies born to a purebred German Shepherd. She and her litter mates were surrendered to animal control at 8 weeks old. That's all that we knew about her background when adopting her. The Wisdom panel accurately listed her coat color and length, her eye color, her ears being erect and that she has furnishings. She does indeed have small wiry hairs around her lips! It listed two of her siblings with nearly identical ancestry results! We were fairly certain that she was mostly German Shepherd with some retriever of some sort and possibly terrier. The results showed about 60% German Shepherd and about 15% Golden Retriever followed by 10% American Staffordshire Terrier and 8% Standard Poodle. The remaining percentages were small amounts of other herding breeds. Based on her appearance, what knowledge we have of her mother and her behaviors, we feel that this test was spot on! We're quite satisfied with the results and happy that we spent the money to learn more about our sweet girl!
They said my dog is 50% australian shepherd he's 10lb max looks nothing like a aussie nor acts like one at all We took a Embark test and it showed all Terrier breeds and small breeds no mention of Australian Shepherd
Overall a good product. But after you get your results make sure you unsubscribe from the email list. They non stop spam emails trying to get you to upgrade. On a daily basis!
Loved getting the results just now that my 16 year old dog is mostly pug. That’s a shock. Ordered the test on Wednesday morning got it Friday afternoon back in the mail the same day. The following Wednesday they got her dna and just got the results now. Neat to read all of the different findings. You can sign up to see relatives of your dog and that is neat. Worth the $86.
Pretty accurate results for our 2 Shepnees! Described them to a T without ever seeing a photo of them. We found their sibling close by with the same results. :)
Love this test. So easy to use. We have used it on all three of our dogs. Love that they provide the shipping box and postage.
very accurate results, even showed me dogs related to her and a breakdown of the breeds! screened for 30 genetic health risks and helped me understand her better. i 100% recommend for anyone on the fence !!
I have seen both positive and negative reviews. We were super happy with the results of our test. The results were here super quick and I feel they are accurate. German Shepherd and Collie Mix with a tiny bit of another shepherd chow and husky....he does have a few spots of black on his tongue.....but 56 percent GS and 36 percent Collie seems right on...also we found out he has the collie sensitivity to some medications. So I will check with my vet.
We adopted a rescue girl who looks like a large Yorkie - 11 Pounds. Turns out, she’s 60% Yorkie with Chihuahua, Maltese, Biewer Terrier and Havanese mixed in, AND has a full brother in our city! Her brother’s photo looks more like a Morkie. She tested negative for a number of potential illnesses. It’s such a fun thing to do. Two of our other dogs were tested by Wisdom Panel. With no back story for these rescue dogs, it gives you some insight. And it’s exciting to know who you’re living with:-)
