How does Wisdom Panel® work?

Once your sample is received at our lab, it is scanned into our 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. Our computer used information from our 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 do I use my Wisdom Panel® 2.5 kit to test my dog’s DNA?

Testing is as easy as 1-2-3.

1. Simply collect a sample from the inside of your dog’s cheek with the included swabs.
2. Activate your test online at www.wisdompanel.com/start and mail the swabs back to our laboratory with the postage-paid shipping label.*
3. Within 3 weeks, you’ll receive an e-mailed ancestry report with your dog’s results.

*Activation of test online will allow immediate tracking of your sample as well as updates throughout the process of the test analysis. Please be sure to complete all required fields.

How long does it take to get Wisdom Panel®2.5 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 our website. You will receive email notification when the report is available for download.

Can Wisdom Panel® 2.5 identify health issues or disease predispositions?

Wisdom Panel® 2.5 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® 2.5?

Yes. Wisdom Panel® 2.5 is designed for dogs of all ages and is safe and easy to be used at any stage in a dog’s development. However, we do recommend 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.

How are key physical traits inherited?

Breeds can combine their influences in countless, fascinating ways. It’s a unique combination that makes your dog one-of-a-kind. Your dog may behave like – or strongly resemble – just one of the breeds in its makeup, but – much more commonly – your dog’s looks and personality will blend aspects of these breeds.

Additional Product Information

Dogs can’t talk, but their DNA can™
Over 25 million mixed-breed dog owners know their dogs…but not as well as they could. Where does Buddy get his curly tail from? Why does he love digging holes in the backyard? Could I be doing more to make him happier and healthier? Your dog may not be able to tell you the answers – but his DNA can. Wisdom Panel® 2.5, the most comprehensive breed identification DNA test on the market, can not only help unravel your dog’s unique breed history, it can also provide DNA-based insights towards optimizing your dog’s overall care and training needs.

Wisdom Panel® can determine the ancestry of a mixed-breed, purebred or designer dog by testing for more than 200 breeds. A dog’s ancestry can influence him in surprising ways. Obvious and not-so-obvious physical traits plus behaviors like digging, herding and barking all come from the various breeds in a dog’s family tree. Once an owner understands a dog’s natural tendencies, it makes it possible to create a tailored training, exercise and nutrition program to fit his one-of-a-kind needs.

I had a lot of fun verifying the breed of our rescue dog. We all had our suspicions, but are happy to confirm them. I've recommended this to friends and would recommend Wisdom Panel to anyone with breed related questions. (Posted on 12/17/2013)

Exceeded my expectations. Arrived fast, super easy to use, and I received my results back a few days quicker than expected. I was admittedly skeptical, but there were a few things the Wisdom Panel DNA test simply couldn't of known unless, you know, they actually *tested* my dog's dna. They were spot on. Perhaps most interesting, is I now understand certain behaviors a lot better than I did before. We added 2nd rescue that we are also going to test. (Posted on 11/19/2013)
