The Wisdom Panel 3.0 Breed Identification Dog DNA Test Kit is a test to determine the breed of your dog but it extends so much more than to only provide you with information about your type of pet. The canine DNA test kit can help you understand where your dog originated from as far as family line, and see if there are any underlying health concerns you should be aware of and be on the lookout for. The DNA test kit provides results that any serious pet owner should consider knowing, health and history of disease will all be induced.
The Wisdom Panel for Dogs DNA Test Kit can provide you with your dog's DNA results in as little as two weeks. The process starts by supplying you with a box containing two swabs that you will use to swab the inside of your dog's mouth (instructions are provided). From there, you will activate your kit online and mail-in your swabbed samples. Once the lab receives your pet's DNA sample, they will get to work in determining your dogs breed, types and variations. Results will also look for potential health risks and drug sensitivities.
A personalized, or in this case, a dogalized profile will be made on behalf of your dog. Once results have been gathered by the lab, you will be able to make determinations based on your dog's Nutrition Guidance to offer your furry friend the best nutrients beneficial to them individually.
But my dog is special. Yes, you are right - but just how special is your dog? When it comes to training your dog out of habits that should not really be a trait for the type of dog you have, you start to wonder how this came to be. Your pet's family line may not be as pure as you thought, maybe this could be the reason why you are seeing unique behaviors not associated with the type of dog you thought you had.
All your dog's mysteries will be out for you to see. The Wisdom Panel Canine DNA Test will provide relative information from up to three generations of the family tree.
Take a look at our many Pet Supply options to treat your pet to some of the same benefits we offer to it's owners.

When Can I Test My Dog?
The age of the dog doesn’t matter so much as waiting until the puppy is weaned from the mother. If the puppy is still consuming mother’s milk, there may be enough of her cells to generate a false result.
Accuracy of the Wisdom Panel 3.0 DNA Identification Test Kit for Dogs
While Wisdom Health is one of the more well-known DNA tests due to the high accuracy, there is no way to place a specific percentage of accuracy on the exam. There are several factors that will affect the quality of the results, such as the quality of the cheek swab sent in.
By using over 1800 different markers to distinguish between over 350 dog breeds, the computers program that compiles all the data is able to locate minute differences for high accuracy. Wisdom Health also does validation testing, running the sample of your dog several times and exams are conducted in an accredited by USDA laboratory for quality control.
What Breeds Does It Test for?
The DNA test increases in accuracy with a higher number of breeds to choose from, so Wisdom Health uses specifications for over 350 breeds as classified by the Kennel Clubs in both the US and the UK. This list includes breeds from all over the world, such as the Jindo, Brittany, and Cirneco dell’Etna while including many more commonly known breeds such as Bulldogs, Boxers, Collies, and Great Danes.
Not only does the exam cover a wide variety of breeds, but even recognized variations. For example, it will recognize if a Dachshund is a miniature, standard, smooth, longhaired or wirehaired. It even covers wild breeds such as the coyote or the wolf.
While the exam is able to be used on all dogs to test their genetic makeup, it does not recognize pit-bulls as a single breed. Often when pit-bulls are administered the test, they have a combination of terriers, mastiffs, bulldogs or boxers. Because pit-bulls vary so much genetically, there is no consistent DNA profile that can be used for testing.
How Does the Product Work?
After the sample is received, it is scanned and the DNA is pulled and examined for 1800 markers. Once these are determined, the results are sent to a computer to compare these markers to over 350 breeds and an algorithm considers every possible combination of pedigree trees for the last 3 generations. The computer is then able to detect the closest match.
How Long Does It Take?
Allow time for the sample to arrive at the laboratory. Once it has arrived, it will take 2-3 weeks for testing and compiling results. They will then be made available online. As no physical report is generated, be sure to check back online to see the results.
Collecting a Good Sample From Your Dog:
- To avoid food debris, wait at least 2 hours after your dog has eaten
- After opening the swab, avoid touching the bristles
- Use one hand to provide a gentle pressure on the outside of the cheek
- Inside the cheek, roll and rotate the bristles firmly
- Allow 5 minutes for the swab to dry
- Replace swab in sleeve- do not seal for risk of bacteria growth
- Activate your kit online for the Activation Code Number needed before sending kit
- Place the sleeve in the carton and seal
- Sent with outgoing mail- a pre-paid shipping label is already on the carton
