The Wisdom Panel mixed breed test from Amazon is a test kit to determine the breed mix of your dog. Be sure to read the instructions carefully it is a simple kit to use.
Wash your hands thoroughly before using the test, and never let the q tip touch anything but the dog's mouth and the inside of the plastic piece it is placed in. They recommend for you to withhold food from the dog for 2-3 hours before swabbing.
You also shouldn't let your dog chew on anything like a dog bone, lick anyone, or genuinely be allowed to touch anything. Any of these acts could potentially hurt results.
Amazon will only send you two swabs so be careful. Put the dog in a crate or spare room if you have to, make sure that there is nothing the dog can lick, eat, or chew. Then take the dog out, and make sure the dog doesn't start licking your hands while you are trying to give the test.
The best time to swab your dog's cheek is immediately after waking up in the morning. That way the fasting time is not so long.
The results also allows the owner to dig much deeper into what the results mean in terms of health issues, physical appearance, and behavior.
For each breed, they provide a detailed profile of height, weight, ear, muzzle, and tail shape.
They will also give you a history of the breed and how humans used the breed, personality traits, and temperament.
