I ordered this test because we purchased a dog from the pound and had no clue what breed she was. The test is a pretty simple one, providing you with two q-tips that allow you to gather DNA from your dogs cheek. You essentially get two chances to acquire decent DNA to send to them, so make sure they count. This is the first point where I felt the instructions could have been better. Contaminating DNA is easy, and many people who complain are most likely contaminating their DNA and then wondering why it's getting false calls.
The instructions remind you to not feed your dog 2 hours prior to doing the test, what the instructions DO NOT tell you is that you also shouldn't let your dog chew on anything like a dogbone, lick anyone, or genuinely be allowed to touch anything. Any of these acts could potentially hurt results, and while unlikely, can cause a great deal of these errors. I would personally recommend giving the dog some water, then taking the water away and quarantining the dog for 2-3 hours without anything. Put him in a crate or spare room if you have to, make sure she/he has nothing they can lick, eat, or chew. Then take the dog out, and make sure they don't start licking your hands while you are trying to give the test. It also would be a wise decision to wash your hands thoroughly before using the test, and never let the qtip touch anything but the dogs mouth and the inside of the plastic piece it is placed in.
The second thing I wanted to mention is with regards to how genotyping works. Essentially, the "testers" have positive controls which show a spread of bands they picture.Read more ›
The test was extremely easy to use. I answered a few basic questions (dog's name, my name, my e-mail address, etc.) and swabbed each of my dogs' cheeks with two separate swabs (Annie then ate one of her swabs--the company promptly sent two replacements at no extra charge). I let the swabs air dry for 5 minutes, packed them up, and sent them on their way. No pictures or hints as to my dogs' appearance were provided.
About two weeks later, the results were in. Results are sent via e-mail. The e-mail contains a link to a .pdf file. The reports are informative but they aren't terribly detailed. If you want lots of interesting science and detailed explanations of the results, you won't get that from this or any other company at present. What you will get is a chart showing the breeds detected for your dog and the level at which they are detected.Read more ›
OK - so we decided to do this test because our shelter dog is now almost three and everyone who would meet her would ask us what she was. Most people assumed that she had some Staffordshire Bull Terrier in the mix, but we were leaning towards a Pointer/Dalmatian mix. What came back really surprised us - a minor match to Rottweiler. At 46 lbs and more than half white with some big black spots and some black ticking, a Rotti was the last thing we'd guess. So I emailed the folks at Wisdom to explain why out of 170 breeds, we only received 1 minor match (great grandparent). Within 24 hours, my email was responded to and I was given a choice to have one of their Vet's who's also a genetics expert review our dogs results free of charge. They set the expectation that this would take about 10 to 15 days, which it did and I was able to personally speak with the person who was assigned.Read more ›

I found this DNA kit to be very informative and what I expected with what I know about my rescue. I was surprised that he was 50 lab and 50 pit with no other breed in the mix.Published 12 days ago by Sharron
