Determine the breed of your dog and the unique genetic blueprint behind your dog's ancestry, health, personality and other traits.
The DNA of any dog governs the appearance of the dog as well as being related to the general behavioral characteristics of the breed. In recent years, there has been a great deal of research performed on how differences in DNA give rise to the differences that are seen among breeds.
Advances in DNA testing technology mean that it has become possible to identify the ancestry of any dog by performing a simple test using a cheek swab. The DNA required for the test to be run is isolated from cells that are trapped on the swab. All cells carry the same genetic material, regardless of the type or location in the animal. Taking a cheek swab is, therefore, the easiest way to obtain the samples needed for testing.
We test all AKC, UKC and CKC breeds for a total of 340 different breeds.
Our DNA analysis for breed composition is now even more precise because the pieces of the canine genomic puzzle are much better understood.
Genetics is what makes a pointer point, a sheep dog herd, and determines the size and life-span of breeds. Dog breeds have the greatest mammalian diversity in terms of size, shape and behaviour, and are extremely susceptible to behaviour modification by social contact with people and other animals.
In genetic terms dogs are a very recent phenomena, surprisingly there are only about 1500 generations between the common original ancestor, the wolf, and today's diverse breeds. Recent evidence indicates that the common ancestor had its origins in the Middle East and in the course of archaeological studies in the area, there is extensive evidence documenting the transition from the wolf to the domesticated family member.
The bond originated as wolves followed hunter-gathers to feed on food remnants left behind. The proximity of some of the animals formed the first tentative but strengthening bond with primitive man. As the bond and domestication evolved, dogs played an important role in human development by acting as sentries and guardians of early settlements. Eventually, selective breeding evolved into the specialization that exists today.
