Dog Nucleic Acids

At last, you can figure out if your Wolfhound's great-grandparents were REALLY Irish.

Hey! HEY! I'm talking to YOU, CHARLIE! Yeah, remember me? I was in this bar last week with my dog, and you said something terrible, and everyone laughed. And I couldn't say anything then. But I went out and bought a Wisdom Panel Doggie DNA Tester. And now, buddy boy, I've got EVIDENCE that you're wrong!

See this? This is a report from the Wisdom Panel website, and I printed it out myself. Three weeks ago I sent one of the included swabs to their Doggie DNA lab, and they shot me back a full ancestry report.

See that? That's a pedigree tree! Goes all the way back to the great-grandparents by examining 321 genetic markers. They can tell a pure-bred from a complex chart of eight different mixed breeds with ease! And the one with the highest score? That's what gets the top ranking on the chart! Like, you could find out your greyhound is actually a collie!

But that's beside the point. Look there. Yeah, right there. See what it says? "Dear sir, you have no dog DNA whatsoever, and please don't contact us any more." Pretty clear, isn't it? I'm a straight-up human! It's science, baby! You can't argue with that!

So what are you waiting for, Charlie? You gonna apologize for calling me a son of a bitch, or what?

What is Wisdom Panel® 2.0 DNA Test?
With a simple cheek swab, you can uncover DNA-based insights that may help you understand your dog’s unique appearance, behaviors, and wellness needs. You’ll be emailed an official Ancestry Report revealing your dog’s genetic background including:

  • Mixed Breed Dog: breed ancestry identification back to great-grandparents
  • Purebred Dog: breed certification and level of genetic diversity
  • Designer Dog: certification that your dog is a true 50/50 hybrid of two purebred parents
  • Adult weight range prediction: to help you make appropriate nutrition and diet choices
  • Breed insights to help you provide a better training program, understand behavior, and create an effective care and wellness plan

How does Wisdom Panel work?

  • Once your sample is received at the Wisdom Panel lab, it is scanned into the database and assigned to a batch for testing
  • It then undergoes processing to extract the DNA from your dog’s cells which is examined for the 321 markers that are used in the test
  • The results for these markers are sent to a computer that evaluated them using a program designed to consider all of the pedigree trees that are possible in the last three generations
  • The trees considered include a simple pedigree with a single breed (a likely pure-bred dog), two different breeds at the parental level (a first-generation cross), all the way up to a complex tree with eight different great-grandparent breeds allowed
  • Their computer extracts information from their extensive breed database to fill these potential pedigrees
  • For each of the millions of combinations of ancestry trees built and considered, the computer gave each a score representing how well that selected combination of breeds matched to your dog’s data
  • The pedigree with the overall best score is the one which is selected and provided to you in your dog’s individualized report

How long does it take to get Wisdom Panel®2.0 results?

  • Once the sample has been received at the lab, it generally takes 2-3 weeks for the sample to be tested, results generated and report available for download on their website
  • You will receive email notification when the report is available for download

Can Wisdom Panel® 2.0 identify health issues or disease pre-dispositions?

  • Wisdom Panel® 2.0 can determine the breed makeup of a dog – it is not designed to determine which disease traits – if any – might be present in a dog
  • The real value in this test is that with knowledge of a dog’s breed ancestry, owners can work together with their veterinarians to develop a more targeted care plan for their dog and have a better understanding of their dog’s physical and behavioral traits
  • This one-time investment helps owners feel confident they are providing their dog with the best care possible

Can puppies be tested with Wisdom Panel® 2.0?

  • Yes, Wisdom Panel® 2.0 is designed for dogs of all ages and is safe and easy to be used at any stage in a dog's development
  • However, it Wisdom Panel® recommends waiting until a puppy has been weaned to prevent cross-contamination from suckling on their mother and having cells from her skin and milk in their mouth at the time of swabbing
