Will DNA Profiling tell be what breed my dog is?

No, a DNA profile can only be used to:

  • Confirm the identity of a dog should it be lost or stolen (if it was profiled previously).
  • Confirm the parentage or offspring of a dog by comparing its profile with that of its parents or offspring, respectively.

A DNA profile cannot determine the breed makeup of a dog or prove that it is a purebred dog, nor does it provide any information about the conformation of a dog. To determine the breed make up of a dog we suggest the Wisdom Panel or Embark.
