Unexpected Wisdom Panel Results – October Edition

Browsing the Wisdom Panel community page can lend itself to some real mysteries of dog genetics. I would have never guessed these mixes on my own. Wisdom Panel results can be quite fun and entertaining. I recently had Laika tested and while it’s not nearly as surprising as these examples I’m still puzzled by the Bernese Mountain Dog part.

What are Wisdom Panel Kits?

Wisdom Panel is a dog DNA test kits you can buy for your dog. You simply take a couple swabs from inside your dogs cheek and send it off to their lab. In about 3 weeks you’ll receive your dogs personalized ancestry report (you can see Laika’s here).

If you’ve ever considered testing out your own dog Wisdom Panel is currently offering 15$ off and donating $5 to the American Humane Society with every purchase through 11/24 with the code AHA2014.

How Accurate are Dog DNA Tests?

The accuracy of the test varies depending on how much of a mix your dog really is. If your dog has two purebred parents the results were shown to be 84% accurate in 2009 by the National Canine Research Council.

If you own a mixed breed dog chances are you’re like me and have spent many hours pondering the possibilities of dog breeds possible. Eventually my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to buy a Wisdom Panel DNA test for my dog Laika. I was pleased with the results and it helped explain a few of her personality traits.
