I have not done the 23 and me test, but I did have my dog do the wisdom panel.

It was $75 and very interesting! The rescue said she was basset/German Shepard. It turns out she was 50% basset, 25% lab and 25% unknown (with German shepard being low on the possibilities). It also said what she looked like and a couple of genetic diseases she didn't have.

I would highly recommend wisdom panels as it was fun for us to know our dog's "flavor".

I wonder if it would not be the same to do a similar analysis for ourselves. I hope more people post on that thread to see if it's worth it (I didn't want to hijack it). $200 seems so much steeper than $75 (also we had a relative give us money to specifically spend on our dog. We realize this was an extravagance).

I think it would be so interesting to do it on pet where you knew they were a mix but didn't know exactly what the mix was.

I read about this test on PT right before christmas. So this was the surprise gift I got for the family and they were thrilled. Our dog is pretty weird looking and we waited excitedly for the results. When we got her she was listed as a "terrier mix".
The test has her as 25% miniature schnauzer, 25% lab, 25% terrier that couldn't be determined, 12% pit and 12% rottweiler. I thought the text was fairly extensive and found the info on the genetic diseases interesting.
Thanks to whoever initially posted about it.

I did it on my dog because we adopted her from the shelter and were always curious. I wonder about the validity of the results though.

It said my dog was Lhasa apso and cattle dog. She does herd like a cattle dog, and her hair grows similar to a Lhasa apso, but she is large at 45 lbs to be mixed with such a small dog. I can't remember exactly what the percentages were, but it said she was over half Lhasa apso.

This is a collage I made when I got the test done.

I don't know if the DNA test kit we used for our dog was the same as yours--?

Mars Veterinary Wisdom Panel 2.5 Breed Identification DNA Test Kit

It was a lot of fun getting the Ancestry Report that "certified" her as 100% mutt

BUT, the best part was getting an email from the company offering us a refund BECAUSE of the fact that she was a mutt! I did not know that they guaranteed a breed identification until I had received the email from them. NICE!

We did find out, though, that there was a chow and a lab somewhere in the great-great grandparents mutt generation. So, now we know why her tail curls up
