Dogs can’t talk, but their DNA can
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® 2.0, 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.
Over 25 million mixed-breed dog owners know their dogs…but not as well as they could. With the simple swipe of a cheek swab, Wisdom Panel® can determine the ancestry of a mixed-breed dog by testing for more than 190 breeds, the largest database on the market. Within three weeks, dog owners will be e-mailed an official Ancestry Report that reveals the dog’s genetic background.
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.
1. Collect Dog's DNA
IMPORTANT: Wait approximately 2 hours after a meal or treat (drinking water is fine) to begin the DNA collection. Prior to swabbing, inspect your dog's mouth between the cheek and gums for food debris.
Peel back the edges of swab sleeve. Set the sterile sleeve aside for mailing. Remove swab from package by holding its handle. Avoid touching the swab's bristles with your hand.
Holding your dog's head, insert the swab into his mouth between upper gums and cheek. FIRMLY ROLL AND ROTATE the swab's bristles between the inner surface of the cheek and gums for about 15 seconds. This will not harm your dog in any way.
The goal is to collect a large quantity of cheek cells for DNA analysis.
AIR DRY SWAB by inserting the swab handle in holes of packaging to air dry for 5 minutes.
REPEAT sample collection steps with the second swab.
2. ACTIVATE TEST ONLINE

Activating your test allows for immediate tracking of your sample as well as updates throughout the process of the test analysis.
3. MAIL BACK TEST
IMPORTANT: Apply LABEL #1 to the back of the swab sleeve.
RE-INSERT both dry swabs into the protective sleeve so that the swab's bristles are completely covered. DO NOT re-seal the sleeve as this can cause bacteria and fungus to grow.
PLACE the sleeve with the swabs back in the carton insert by sliding the sleeve under the 2 flaps (as you received your kit). Swabs MUST BE SUBMITTED in original box or they will not be processed.
SEAL the carton by inserting TABS into slots, REMOVE tape backing and close carton TIGHTLY.
APPLY SHIPPING LABEL to carton and place with outgoing mail.
SAVE the instruction card for future reference.
