Foreign Dogs?

Can Wisdom Panel identify the breeds in a dog that was born outside the UK?
The Wisdom Panel test was developed using pure breeds primarily from those found on the American Kennel Club and The Kennel Club (UK) registry lists. If your dog was imported from a country/region other than Canada, mainland US, Western or 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.


OPEN SWAB SLEEVE – Peel back the edges of the swab sleeve about 3 centimetres (not all the way) and remove swab by holding its handle. Do not touch the bristles. Save the sleeve to place the swabs in for mailing.

COLLECT CHEEK CELLS – Firmly roll the swab’s bristles between the inner surface of the cheek and gums for about 15 seconds for each swab. NOTE: DO NOT let your dog eat anything or share a water dish with other dogs for about an hour before you do the test.

AIR DRY SWABS – Allow swabs to dry for about five minutes. Repeat steps 1-3 for the second swab.

ACTIVATE YOUR KIT – Visit and click on the “Activate You Kit” button at the top of the page. Fill out all the information, check it for accuracy and submit. You will receive an Activation Code Number that you need to write on the back of your Sample ID Sticker.

APPLY SAMPLE ID STICKER – Complete the label with your Activation Code Number and apply it to the back of the swab sleeve.

REINSERT DRY SWABS – Reinsert both dry swabs into the protective sleeve they came in. DO NOT reseal as this can cause bacterial growth.

SEAL THE CARTON – Place the sleeve with the swabs back into the carton it came in and seal. If it was a box, place the tabs in the slots, remove the tape backing and close carton tightly.

MAIL TEST TO LAB – Apply the included pre-paid shipping label and place with the outgoing mail. Note all international samples are shipped to the US for processing so please allow extra time. IN APPROXIMATELY 2-3 WEEKS FROM THE TIME THE SAMPLE REACHES THE LAB YOU WILL BE EMAILED A LINK TO DOWNLOAD YOUR REPORT.

55 Easy and straightforward, good results report.
Verified Purchase

By Jane Story on 21 January 2019

My kit arrived with two swabs and very clear instructions. I activated my kit online, got the swabs done and posted them off the same day. It says 2 to 3 weeks from receiving the swabs at the lab. I got an email saying they'd received the swabs about 8-10 days after posting and received the email notification that the results were in less than 2 weeks after that. I guess from buying to receiving results was about a month but that included the Christmas/New Year period. From memory, they only asked the dog's name (so they can print it on the report), age and weight and I was asked if I'd adopted him (which was a yes for me). I got an email when the results were in and I viewed these online initially. I was delighted with the results! You do get a full pdf report giving the % breed split, a suggested possible family tree and a little bit of information about each breed etc. It was very interesting and breed information could be good to know from a health point of view. I would never have guessed the result. My dog wasn't the mix of breeds I thought he was but I totally see it now I know. I'm sooo glad I got this done. I wish I'd done it sooner.

55 unknown puppy from a bad breeder
Verified Purchase

By Victoria Valembois on 8 September 2017

We got a puppy from a breeder who lied and he came to us in a bad way, two small swaps from the inside of his cheeks and sent it on its way. The product was very easy to do and was not distressing for our new puppy. I was very glad to get the results as we now know what we are dealing with health and size wise.

Identifying the Merle gene

Nicole Freeland

We are proud owners two pure breed Great Danes. We plan to breed and anyone that has educated themselves knows that coat colors play a big role in your dogs health and the possibility of genetic defects. I’d like to know if either of my dogs are carriers of the Merle gene. Is this something that the test reveals?

  • Website Content Developer

Hi Nicole,

Thanks for your enquiry.

The Wisdom Panel 2 and 3 do not include genetic testing for the Merle gene. We would suggest that you contact who could help you.

Spanish breeds ?

Rik Hall

Does it include Spanish breeds like the Galgo's or Podenco's ?

  • Customer Service Advisor

Hi Rik

Thanks for your question.

The Wisdom Panel 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 their database.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards
