This is a unique service provided by Blackdog. We will send you a 'Wisdom Insights' DNA test kit which is made up of two sterile cotton swabs, a clear set of instructions and a reply envelope. All you need do is carefully follow the instructions and take a small sample from inside your dog's mouth. The results are normally posted to you within 21 days from the receipt of the sample.

'Wisdom Insights' have spent a considerable amount of time analysing DNA from pure bred dogs to build a comprehensive database that highlights the differences between different breeds. We now have access to one of the largest worldwide databases of over 185 dog breeds. By comparing your dog's DNA with the database we can identify which breeds are present in your dog. This test accurately identifies the breeds that are likely to be present with industry leading precision. The test is able to match the DNA of approximately 99% of samples with this database of pure breeds. If the breeds that make up your dog are not in the database, your result may include a very closely related breed or a combination of breeds that relate to the true breed ancestor of your dog.

The database of breeds is made up from the known US and UK Kennel Club breeds. This test should not be used to test dogs which have been rehomed from Romania or anywhere else outside the UK. Test results on these dogs are inconclusive and no refund will be given in these circumstances.
