Looking at our rescue he looks like a terrier or collie of some sort. Since he's a rescue we wanted to know a little bit more about our dog. We purchased the Wisdom Panel Breed ID & Health Condition kit and the results are in a nut shell - a joke. Its says he's 30% chihuahua and 20% poodle and his weight range should be between 11-18 pounds. If I were to follow that guide/suggestion I would starve him to death. He should weigh 23-27lbs per the vet. Stay away from this 'kit'. Its expensive and a waste since they obviously just made up data for my pet.
First of all, they divided up which breeds my dog is made up of, into 3 categories: Companion, Terrier, and Sporting. I'm not sure what that means. Anyhow, under Companion, it told me my terrier is made of 18% PUG. Under that, Pomeranian, Poodle, Maltese and other outrageous breeds that my dog looks and acts nothing like. My vet had assumed he was a mix of a Norfolk and Norwich terrier and those make perfect sense because my dog resembles those very much. I paid well over $100 for this and was so excited, but alas, I do not trust these results at all.
Did tests on both our dogs… May’s outcome made sense. Australian Healer and border collie plus bits of other herding type breeds. She had been shuffled around quite a-bit before I found her. Tip was a bit surprising and explains some of his behaviors - Australian Healer and English Springer Spaniel and bits of other breeds. - he was supposed to be full Healer - he was purchased from Amish puppy sellers at the stockyards by a friend and ended up coming to our farm. He is long legged, has button ears, a soft curly guard coat, always has his nose to the ground and is quite the hunter. Herding…. not so much. I asked the vet how he could be so tall coming from two shorter legged breeds. He smiled and said, “ahhh the beauty of genetics” Very worthwhile. Gives you insight on behaviors your dog might be exhibiting - helps you understand what makes them tick - helps with training too. when you mix breeds you never know which breed traits will dominate. Clear instructions. Easy mailing. Good communication. Useful information. Happy with product.
As usual great turn around time fromChewy getting this product. Weare anxiously awaiting Maggie's test results! However, very good about keeping you updated and easy to use test.
I have only just recently sent in my dogs dna sample. However I am impressed already because they sent me an email saying they had received my sample and would start the process. I am waiting patiently for the results.
You pay a lot of money for this DNA test only to have them mix up your results and then not even own up to it. They claim our dog is 70 pct pit bull and 30 pct Rottweiler. Our dog looks nothing like either we were told she was a hound and looks exactly like a hound. Personally I would think they should have sent us another kit. We are going to submit another kit through embark.
Easy to collect sample, great communication, fast results and a wealth of information! I got a great deal during prime days so was also a super reasonable price. User platform for registering the kit and obtaining results and information was extremely user friendly and easy to read/ navigate. Very pleased with purchase and results. So neat to see my boys family members!
The rescue we got our dog from told us she was a Beagle mix, but everyone kept mistaking her for having german shepherd, so we got this test. Turns out she doesn't have any beagle in her at all! But she does have 6% german shepherd. I got this test because I wanted to know if she would have any genetic health complications, and thankfully she doesn't! Really happy with the process and the results.
Very easy to use, instructions very simple. Sent the swabs off and within a couple days received a email that they had gotten the swabs and were starting to process them, just waiting for the results( which they said takes a couple weeks) .
I am extremely pleased with this company. Communication!!!!! I was not left wondering if I did everything right. While waiting and after results they kept me in the loop. I feel I got my monies worth with the amount of info received and their format is fun and upbeat.
