DNA tests for dogs

asked 2015-03-30 19:04:26 -0500

Has anyone submitted their dogs DNA for testing? Just curious what you thought of the results, and if you think people with mutts should give it a shot?

Since Day 1, I've thought about having my dog's DNA tested since he was a rescue that came with absolutely no information, and he clearly wasn't one part of what the shelter had him labeled. Our local news recently had a segment on the DNA tests, in which they sent samples from several dogs to the two largest labs. Here is a link to the report (including video) and then click on the link for the actual DNA results:

I want to do it. I know they're not terribly accurate, but I think it'd be fun.. hey, if I'll pay money to have my dog ordained, I can probably be convinced to pay money for a dodgy DNA test. :)

DNA tests for dogs are really inaccurate. The science just isn't there yet. The results may be entertaining though! :D
