Ancestry.com for Your Dog?
How does the testing process work? Does it require a blood sample or vet visit?
A cheek swab and instructions will be mailed to you. By swabbing your dog’s cheek, you can easily take a sample in under a minute at home, no blood required. Then mail the sample in a provided pre-paid return envelope and your results will be available in a few weeks.
Which breeds can you identify?
We test for over 150 breeds - and even wolf, coyote, and village dog ancestry - together these breeds cover over 98% of dogs in America. This is the only test that can test for village dogs, and we can distinguish where village dogs come from! For more information see the full list of breeds that we test for.
