Dog Breed Identification Test
Timeframe: 3 weeks after we receive your samples at our office.
Ready to discover your dog’s genetic heritage? International Biosciences offers breed identification DNA testing. With a simple cheek swab, you can uncover DNA-based insights that may help you understand your dog’s unique appearance, behaviours and wellness needs.
Why Take A Dog Breed Identification Test?
• Understanding your dog’s breed means you can develop a better training programme
• You also stand a better chance of finding someone who will be willing to breed their purebred with yours
• Proof of genetic breed heritage means your pups may command higher prices.
• If you are thinking of getting a dog, a dog breed verification test may help you decide whether you have chosen the right dog.
Discover Your Dog’s Genetic History
Once you receive the test kit it can be performed on adult dogs and puppies alike, which make it ideal if your dog recently had puppies. All you need to do is collect a DNA sample using our kit and send it back for testing. You will have the full comprehensive results back three weeks after we receive your dog’s sample.
We offer reliable and accurate results. This means you can stop guessing and find out the genetic history of your dog today.
Testing Process And Sample Collection
Testing your dog for its genetic makeup is easier than you would imagine. Once the kit arrives you will get an instruction booklet, 2 DNA cheek swabs (both for use on one dog), pre-paid label and envelope for shipping back to the laboratory.
You will need to use the cheek swabs provided in the kit to collect some of your dog’s DNA. Next, let the swabs dry for about five minutes before you put it back into the case that they came in. Remember that you should never insert damp swabs as this could promote fungal growth. Seal up the carton or box that your kit came in and send it back. Now you just have to wait for the results.
The results will come back about 3 weeks after samples are received at our office. When you get the results there is a plethora of helpful information that you will find inside. You will get a family tree that shows your dog’s genetic history back to their great grandparents. There is also a comprehensive guide telling you about the different breeds found in your dog, including physical and mental traits that could show themselves. An example would be German Shepherds being responsive to a “treat reward” system.
You will also get a breakdown of the “mixed breeds” in your pup’s parents and grandparents. This graph will show all of the most dominant breeds found in mixed breed parents and grandparents. Our kit will help you learn more about your dog than you could ever imagine. Order yours today.
Are There Instances Where This Test Is Not Suitable?
The Wisdom Panel® 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 the UK, Canada, 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.
