That’s the word from the makers of an at-home, do-it-yourself dog DNA test kit. Called Wisdom Panel 2.0, the kit is designed to provide dog owners with a quick and convenient way to test their dog’s DNA.

Understanding the natural tendencies of a particular breed can make it possible to create a tailored training, exercise and nutrition program to fit his one-of-a-kind needs. It may also help owners work with their veterinarians to be on the lookout for certain diseases based on their dog’s genetic history.

Said Dr. Angela Hughes, DVM, Ph.D., veterinary genetics re_search manager, “It’s not only about satisfying your curiosity. The smarter you are about your dog’s past, the smarter you can be about its future.”

The test kit includes “do-it-yourself” cheek swabs. This makes it possible for owners to administer the test at home and mail the sample back in a prepaid package. Within three weeks of receipt of the swab sample, dog owners will be e-mailed an official report revealing their dog’s genetic background.
