Dog Breed Identification Testing
Just a few short years ago it was a real challenge to find out what breed your dog was and most of the time the information was based purely upon the physical characteristics of the dog and the traits associated with specific breeds. Today you can remove all the guess work and scientifically establish the key breeds that make up your dog. Dog breed identification testing with homeDNAdirect starts from only £73.
We offer one of the most sophisticated and detailed dog DNA testing systems on the market. These tests have been beneficial for dog breeders and in general, dog enthusiasts around the globe.

The testing procedure
The first thing you will need to do is order your test. After you pay for the test we will send you a sample collection kit that contains the following:
- (2) DNA cheek swabs – both for use on one dog
- Pre-paid label and envelope for shipping back to the laboratory
All you have to do is swab the inside of their cheek with BOTH swabs, let them dry and put them in the swab envelopes that are also included in the kit. Send everything back to us and we will get your results ready for you quickly: 3 weeks from receipt of samples.
Once we get your dog’s DNA it will be run through a series of test where 321 of your dog’s genetic markers are compared to come up with a unique profile for your pup. The profile is used to come up with a comprehensive report on your dog’s genetic information. The results are easy to understand and practical, which makes them perfect for dog breeders and any dog owner is who seeks scientific certitude regarding the breed of their dog.
Important Note: Is your dog from a country outside the contiguous US, UK, Canada, Australia or Germany?
The Wisdom Panel® 2.0 test was developed using pure breeds primarily from those found on The Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club registry lists. If your dog was imported from a country other than Canada, the UK, Australia, Germany, or mainland U.S., or you suspect that your dog’s ancestors are from outside these countries, his breed ancestry may not be well represented in our database.
