Why Get a Wisdom Panel Essential Dog Breed DNA Test?

There are plenty of great reasons you should consider getting this test for your dog. Firstly, you will be able to understand your pup in a new way when you understand his or her breed. Every dog breed is a little different, and if you know the traits of your dog’s particular breed you can develop a training programme that works specifically for your pup.

Another great reason to get this test done is you will be able to find people who have dogs that will be willing to breed with your dog. Included in your results is documentation specifying the breeds found. This information will also make it easier to sell your puppy if you are a breeder who is looking for DNA evidence so that your customers will be happy with their purchase.

The information contained in this test will also help you take better care of your pup in the long run. You will be able to see if they are more likely to get certain diseases or have any health problems or wellness needs. If you love your pet, you obviously want him around as long as possible, and this test will help you achieve that goal.

Important Information for Foreign Dogs

Is your dog from a country outside the UK, mainland US, Canada, Australia or Western Europe?

The Wisdom Panel Essential dog breed 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, mainland US, Canada, Australia or Western Europe, or you suspect that your dog’s ancestors are from outside these countries, his breed ancestry may not be well represented in our database.

This is particularly relevant to dogs from Eastern Europe, Greece or the Middle East. Genetic markers of breeds from these countries are not always compatible with the markers in the Wisdom Panel database which could adversely affect the results.

Important Information for Pit Bull Breeds

The term “pit bull” is not used to refer to a specific dog breed but to a genetically diverse breed group characterised by similar physical characteristics. Pit bull-type dogs were historically bred to attain desired traits by combining guard-type breeds with terriers. In effect, they may attain genetic similarities with the original breeds and other closely related breeds.

Because of the group’s genetic diversity, Wisdom Health is unable to build a DNA profile that genetically identifies every dog visually classified as a “pit bull.” Instead, when these dogs are tested with Wisdom Panel, we would detect various quantities of the component purebred dogs such as the American Staffordshire Terrier, Boston Terrier, Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Mastiff, Bullmastiff, Boxer, Bulldog, and various other terriers and guard breeds. Depending on the dog’s ancestry, there may also be other breeds outside these groups identified in the mix.

Because of some communities’ restrictions on pit bull ownership, Wisdom Health encourages dog owners and providers to know their local laws when considering DNA testing.
