[object Object]

Swab. Send. Smile.

Now you can learn more than ever before about your dog's ancestry, traits, and health in three simple steps.

Wisdom Dog DNA


Just 15 seconds to gather a sample.


Send your kit to our lab with pre-paid shipping.


A few walks (and weeks) later, you’ll receive the results.

And that’s just the beginning. Your part is simple: you swab your dog’s cheek and return your sample with pre-paid postage. That’s when the science starts: a complex process (called “genotyping”) takes place in our lab, in which we determine your dog’s DNA sequence at 100,000 locations across the genome. We then interpret that data to provide unique insights on your dog’s ancestry, traits, and health.
