What to expect in the results
The test will define your canine ancestry going back three generations – parent, grandparent, great-grandparent. Taking the entire DNA profile of the tested dog, the canine breed verification test looks at a total of 321 genetic markers, with access to a vast data base of over 185 breeds. The results are one of the most comprehensive you can get when it comes to finding out your dog’s heritage. You will get information that gives you facts about:
- Specific breeds found in your dog all the way back to their great grandparents, in the form of a family tree
- A full run down of the dominant breed as well as the secondary breeds. The information provided in your results will tell you everything you need to know about the breeds found in your dog’s DNA including traits, behavior, and history of the breed
- Valuable information about health risks that might pertain to your dog based on their breed, which will be useful for their next veterinarian checkup
- Information about what your dog’s adult weight is going to be based approximately on their breed mix
- A proof of breed paper stating what was found in your dog, which is great for breeders everywhere

About the Wisdom Panel® 2.0 test
Carrying out the test could not be simpler. DNA samples are collected using tiny brushes known as mouth swabs. The way it works is we will send you a package with:
- (2) DNA cheek swabs – both for use on one dog
- Pre-paid label and envelope for shipping back to the laboratory
First you will need to swab the inside of your dog’s mouth using both of the provided swabs. Write the information required on the envelopes and place them on the DNA swab envelopes. Finally send everything back to us in the prepaid package and wait for your results. Samples will be ready 3 weeks after we receive your pup’s DNA sample.
Important Note: Is your dog from a country outside the contiguous US, UK, Canada, Australia or Germany?
The Wisdom Panel® 2.0 test was developed using pure breeds primarily from those found on The Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club registry lists. If your dog was imported from a country other than Canada, the UK, Australia, Germany, or mainland U.S., or you suspect that your dog’s ancestors are from outside these countries, his breed ancestry may not be well represented in our database.
