Many times, adopted dogs are found in various places, and the true breed of those dogs is a mystery. Mars Veterinary ™ recently came out with a new do-it-yourself doggie DNA test that can detect your dog’s breed inexpensively and conveniently. With a simple swab of the cheek, Wisdom Panel Insight can determine the ancestry of a mixed-breed dog by testing for more than 170 breeds (which is the largest database on the market!). Within just three short weeks, owners can download an official Ancestry Report that reveals the dog’s genetic background.
Surprisingly, a dog’s ancestry can influence he/she in many ways. For example, physical traits and behaviors such as digging and barking all come from the various breeds in a dog’s family. Once an owner understands a dog’s natural tendencies, the possibilities for training, exercise and nutrition programs are tailored to meet the dog’s needs.
