What is Wisdom Panel Designer Dog?

It is generally an owner's expectation that a Designer Dog is a first generation cross between two purebred dogs from different breeds which forms a true hybrid between the two purebred parents. Do you think that you have a Designer Dog? Is your dog really a cross between two purebred dog breeds? Wisdom Panel Designer Dog certification test can help answer your questions and satisfy your curiosity. The certification test kit provides Designer Dog owners with the peace of mind that they (1) own a true Designer Dog with purebred parents and (2) possess the knowledge to care for their specific Designer Dog type.

How does Wisdom Panel work and what type of information will it provide?

Testing is as easy as 1-2-3.

1. Simply collect a sample from the inside of your dog's cheek with the included swabs.
2. Mail them back to our laboratory in the postage-paid envelope.
3. Within 3 weeks, you'll receive an e-mailed Ancestry Report with your dog's results.


Once you receive your test kit, you must go to the Wisdom panel website to register your Kit ID number. Failure to do so will delay the process and impact our ability to send your test results within our published timeframe.


What's in the box?

Each box includes an instruction sheet, two swabs, a submission form, and a pre-paid envelope.

How do you report a Designer Dog's results?

Since the test is designed to indicate if the dog's DNA is within the test parameters for the breeds you indicate, Wisdom Panel first determines that your "designer" or "hybrid" dog is a dog whose sire and dam are members of recognized breeds and that the ancestry consists of the same breeds over many generations. Your report would include an ancestry tree showing all generations up through your dog's great grandparents and give you a deeper understanding of your dog's genetic makeup for the specific breeds.

Can the test be used to identify health issues or disease predispositions?

Wisdom Panel is used to help determine the breed makeup of a dog. It is not designed to determine which disease traits, if any, might be present in a dog.

Can I perform Wisdom Panel testing on puppies?

Yes. Wisdom Panel test kits are designed for dogs of all ages and are safe and easy to use at any stage in a dog's development.

Why did Mars Veterinary decide to create a swab test?

Wisdom Panel test kits are ideal for dog owners who are looking for an inexpensive, do-it-yourself kit that reveals their dog's ancestry. At Mars Veterinary, we believe that all dogs can benefit from the discovery of their ancestry. Wisdom Panel kits were created to provide dog owners access to unrivaled breed detection inexpensively and in a convenient way.

Learn more about our other products.

There are currently three consumer swab tests available which test against our database of known breeds, Wisdom Panel Mixed Breed, Wisdom Panel Purebred and Wisdom Panel Designer Dog. All of these tests serve different purposes. Generally, if you are not sure of the breeds present in your dog, or if you have a mixed breed dog, you should purchase Wisdom Panel Mixed Breed. If you believe that your dog is a purebred and you believe you know what breed it is, then you should purchase Wisdom Panel Purebred. This test will indicate if the dog's DNA is within the test parameters for the breed you indicate and give you a deeper understanding of your dog's genetic makeup for that specific breed. If you believe that your dog has two purebred parents, (i.e. your dog is a hybrid, otherwise known as a "designer dog") then you should purchase Wisdom Panel Designer Dog. If you are purchasing Wisdom Panel as a gift for someone, we would recommend that you purchase Wisdom Panel Mixed Breed, as this is the broadest test and does not require that the breeds be identified prior to testing.

How long does it take to get results?

Once the sample has been received at the lab it generally takes 2-3 weeks for the sample to be tested, results generated and report available for download on our website. You will receive email notification when the report is available for download.

I found out i own a lab and Argentine dogo mix. which was pretty awesome to find out since i originally said that i thought it was a lab and Weimaraner mix.

Our Vet looked at the results and when he saw what Mars Veterinary thought he was he just laughed saying he couldn't believe how they missed both breeds.

We were initially very surprised by the results. They were not at all what we thought or what we told the company when we submitted the samples. We sent the samples in with a note stating that our rescue dog was half poodle but asking to know what the other half was. I even bought the designer dog kit because we were so sure she was a poodle mix. I would have bet $100 that the oher half was going to be cocker spaniel. However the results showed no poodle at all, but rather 50% bichon plus 25% Weimaraner. Whoa! After processing the total shock for a day or two, it did sink in. We watched our dog with the idea of a pointer/hunter/tracker in mind and suddenly some of the strange little behaviors of our dog made sense (digging out and tracking small rodents, pointing at birds, easily directed to run in different directions with hand gestures and voice), as well as her occasional stubbornness and stamina and running ability. We looked at photos of bichons and her face is all bichon. Anyway we have concluded that it is accurate. I have to give Wisdom credit for figuring it out despite our having sent in the samples labeled as poodle. I did call the company to speak with a scientist and had a nice conversation with her. They were very open about their methods (they test SNP profiles compared to a databank generated from AKC bloodlines) and they stated that 25% is a strong level of expression and they do believe that this level of inheritance is the level that manifests in behaviors and appearance. I conclude that this was well spent money. I feel like I do understand my dog's tendencies better and it dispelled the misinformation we had been given (and still are given all the time) by well meaning commentators including people who inform me that they are "breeders" (i.e.Read more ›

The test more then lived upto what it promised we would learn. We had very cryptic information about the rescued 5 week old puppy and wanted to learn as much as we could about temperament, training and health matters. The Wisdom Panel was easy to administer, easy to ship to the lab, and the delivery of the final analysis was by email. I would give this 5 stars except the company advertises results in two weeks from the date of receipt. It took 14 days for them to receive it (it was sent in the 3 day priority mail envelope that was enclosed), and from the day it was logged as received it took another 17 days to get the analysis. So all in all the process was 14 days longer than advertised. A bit frustrating especially since we were so excited. But I would use this product again and just know it's double the advertised wait time.

I did everything that they said I needed to. I never got an email, plus just contacting them was a hassle. Week two and I still haven't heard from them. Waste.... *editing for an update*: So finally after 30 days, I heard from them. They said that they barely received the sample. Im sure... But then they said it was going to be a couple more weeks for the results. After almost 2 months, I finally got my results. My advice, use another company!

Extremely displeased with the doggy DNA results. Seems like they didnt even try
I'm no genius, but how can a 30-40 lb-ish Tibetan terrier & a 40-50 lb-ish chow chow make little 10 lb maltipoo-looking dog?

I chose this test for a 5 month old rescue pup with no history except that she was a field rescue that was a dachshund mix. Not a designer puppy, exactly but we wanted to know what the other half was so we could work with her behaviorally and know what to expect. When registering your sample with this test it goes into in depth analysis so it requests two different breeds? Why didn't I get the mixed breed test? This test was less expensive and gives you your data regardless of your correct guess or not. So I put dachshund and labrador, due to her long fluffy tail, shiny black coat and forward folding ears (although long and doxie like).

While I waited for this test results I would see different possibilities, one of them being a smooth fox terrier, due to her forward folding ears and black angled face, maybe some border collie due to her heel nipping and wiry chin hairs. But the more I looked at pics of smooth fox terriers the more sold I was. Turns out she is half rat terrier to great grandparents and a quarter standard dachshund with the possiblities of wired hair dachshund and welsh corgi mixed in on her dachshund side. Good to know- wire haired dachshunds are feisty and especially terriers so she will need extra training due to having a small child in the household. I'm well aware that many dachshund rescues don't adopt them to families with small children, however she was from a high kill shelter (which kills dogs with kennel cough and she had an upper respiratory infection when we adopted her) and I have twenty plus years of dachshund owning experience so I'm determined to make this work.

As for Wisdom Panel DNA, the customer service is pretty much non existent using their web based form. That is why I deducted a star.
