Ancestry

Break down your dog’s breed mix. Dogs are one of the most diverse species on the planet. And looks can be deceiving. Even trained experts get breed identification wrong about 75% of the time when judging by visual cues alone. Fortunately, we screen for 350+ breeds, types, and varieties and report your pup’s breed mix down to 1%. So, you’ll finally be able to confidently answer people who ask: "What kind of dog is that?"

Wisdom Dog DNA

Ancestry

Meet your pup’s extended family. To accurately detect your dog’s ancestry, you need three things: a large breed database, a sophisticated algorithm, and a significant number of markers strategically placed across the genome. We’ve got all three, which allows us to map your dog’s ancestry back three generations—all the way to their great-grandparents.

Wisdom Dog DNA

Health

Identify medical complications early. Due to genetic mutations, common medications and procedures are highly dangerous for some dogs. With 25+ medical complications tests, Wisdom Panel™ Essential helps identify conditions that could cause serious problems during routine procedures, such as spaying or neutering. Because there’s nothing like having peace of mind about your pup’s health and safety.

Wisdom Dog DNA

Traits

Understand your dog’s appearance. You know what your dog looks like. But do you know why they look that way? Demystify their physical features with more than 35 trait tests. Your dog’s test results will reveal the genetic factors that give them their distinguishing qualities and one-of-a-kind characteristics—from what makes their fur so silky (or shaggy) to how well they do at high elevation.

Wisdom Dog DNA

Traits

Predict adult size and ideal weight. When it comes to body size, "healthy" looks different for every dog—even among those of the same breed. But planning for nutrition, providing enough exercise, and even picking a big enough dog bed doesn’t have to be a guessing game. After all, your pup’s DNA holds clues to their ideal adult weight range.
