This is pretty much as cheap as it this DNA test gets.

I did a fair bit of research and found Wisdom Panel to be one of the most comprehensive and reputable places to find out your dog's dog breed. It's especially useful if you're not certain exactly what breeds your dog is made up of and unlike some, they don't ask for a photo of your dog, they just need 2 swabs from inside your dog's mouth. The results come back after about 2 weeks and show you 3 generations. I'll post some of my dog's results in the 1st post to give you an idea of what you get back.

  • Wisdom Panel features the largest dog breed database in the market with 350+ breeds, types and variants
  • With a simple cheek swab, you can uncover dna-based insights that may help you understand your dog's unique appearance, behaviors, and wellness needs
  • Breed insights will help you provide a better training program, understand behavior, and create an effective care and wellness plan for your dog
  • Adult weight range prediction to help you make appropriate nutrition and diet choices
  • Pack is shipped in a simple envelope. Activate your test online and mail the swabs back to our laboratory
  • You'll be emailed an official ancestry report revealing your dog's unique genetic background
  • If your dog was imported from a country/region other than Mainland U. S. or Western/Northern Europe, or you suspect that your dog's ancestors are from outside these countries/regions; his breed ancestry may not be well represented in our database.

I ordered this last night. Looks like they are price matching pets at home.

Embark is better for mixed/rescue's etc. Wisdom is better for breeds.

What makes you say that? Wisdom Panel can identify 350+ dog breeds where as Embark can only identify 250 breeds. Surely more is better if you're not certain what your crossbreed is?

It's the markers, I looked into it a while ago for my rescue dog. Embark has more indepth DNA so it can spot small amounts. I'm not saying wisdom is bad or this is a bad offer but if you have a mixed where you don't have much of a clue them my research showed embark, I put my money where my mouth was and spent £120 on embark instead of £70 with Wisdom because of it. There's some really good reddit threads for both of them too.
Should probably get something like this don't know what my dog is he is rare I think as it's hard to find dogs like him

Fair enough. If money was no object then I'd probably have considered Embark but I just wanted to know what else was in my dog just out of curiosity more than anything else and I couldn't justify spending any more than £50. At least when other dog owners ask me what breed my dog is, I can be a bit more specific now

Exactly 6 years ago I sent off a sample of my dog's saliva to Wisdom Panel. No fur, nothing. They came back to me very quickly saying my dog is a mix of three breeds - Border Collie, German Shepherd and Schipperke. For me, it couldn't have been any more accurate and I was delighted to know what breeds were in him as he was a rescue puppy (now 15 years old). The Collie and GS were obvious to us ad after looking at images and descriptions of Schipperkes, it's esy to see he hs a lot of that breed in him too.

Buy with confidence, it's not a con and if you have a non-pedigree, you, like me, may spend the rest of your life wondering what breeds are/were in them. Photo is old now, but then so is the dog
Be interesting to send off our Labs to the labs to see if there's anything undisclosed lurking in there. I'd like to think it would come back lab lab lab lab lab lab & lab
