Wisdom Panel, DNA Testing for Dog

If you felt DNA testing was just for humans and man’s best friend was missing out, you may check Wisdom Panel which provides DNA Testing for Dogs and it costs only $70.

An awesome service!

The process is similar to 23andMe’s DNA testing for humans
  • You get a sample from inside of your dog’s cheek, no spitting needed
  • Mail the sample to Wisdom Panel
  • Wisdom Panel completes the DNA testing and within 3 weeks you get a report back
The report will give your dogs ancestry and point out the breed and mix from over 185 breeds

A dog’s 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 dog’s family tree. Once an owner understands a dog’s natural tendencies, it makes it possible to create a tailored training, exercise and nutrition program to fit his one-of-a-kind needs.

Check photos of dogs whose DNA testing has been completed and after you like the test results, feel free to share your dog’s photo at the site.

Wisdom Panel is owned by Mars, makers of famous candy, pet food and a whole lot more.
