Where does Buddy get his curly tail from? Why does he love digging holes in the backyard? Could I be doing more to make him happier and healthier? Your dog may not be able to tell you the answers but their DNA can. Wisdom Panel Insights, the most comprehensive mixed-breed cheek swab DNA test on the market, can help explain a mixed-breed dogs ancestry.

Over 25 million mixed-breed dog owners know their dogs but not as well as they could. With the simple swipe of a cheek swab, Wisdom Panel Insights can determine the ancestry of a mixed-breed dog by testing for more than 250 breeds, the largest database on the market.

Within two-three weeks, dog owners will be e-mailed an official Ancestry Report that reveals the dogs genetic background.A dogs ancestry can influence him in surprising ways. Obvious and not-so-obvious physical traits plus behaviors like digging, herding and barking all come from the various breeds in a dogs family tree. Once an owner understands a dogs natural tendencies, it makes it possible to create a tailored training, exercise and nutrition program to fit his one-of-a-kind needs.

What will my dogs report tell me?

Wisdom Panel Insights detects the breeds in your dogs ancestry. Your report can be interpreted in the following way:

  • Parent A breed that represents approximately 50% of your dogs DNA. You are likely to see the most physical and behavioral traits from this breed. Dogs with mixed-breed parents will not have a breed represented at this level.
  • Grandparent A breed that represents approximately 25% of your dogs DNA. You may see some physical and behavioral traits from this breed. Dogs with a very mixed ancestry may not have a breed represented at this level.
  • Great-Grandparent A breed that represents approximately 12.5% of your dogs DNA. You are unlikely to see many traits from this breed unless they are dominant.dna info 2

When you understand your dogs natural tendencies, you can tailor a training, exercise and nutrition program to his needs.
