The brand is DNA My Dog. There are about 84 breeds in the DNA My Dog database at this time. New breeds are added constantly.
Overall, I was really impressed with the DNA My Dog report. I loved the certificate, which I can’t wait to share with my dog walking friends, and the breed breakdown report was both informative and interesting. Some of the breeds that were identified in Peggy’s DNA were unexpected, but the character descriptions accompanying the results definitely convinced me that the assessment was correct.
Pros: DNA My Dog provides you with a custom certificate including a photo of your dog, with information stating their DNA composition.

Years after dog DNA testing was first introduced, though, it's finally becoming mainstream. Since Mars Veterinary launched its dog DNA test in 2007, Wisdom Panel, the company—owned by Mars, Incorporated—claims to have sold some 400,000 tests—with the latest consumer version selling for $84.99 a pop. Its other major competitor is DNA My Dog—owned by a Canadian firm—which charges $59.99 per test. Both claim to unlock the mysteries of a dog's genes to reveal their breeds.DNA My Dog is the other consumer test for mixed breed dogs. Located in Toronto, DNA My Dog has sold “lots,” since their 2007 launch according to DNA My Dog’s president Mindy Tenenbaum. DNA My Dog tests for 85 of the most common breeds that Tenenbaum says make up approximately 97% of the common North American mixed breed population. Both tests required taking two samples of cells from the dog’s inner cheek on swabs, which are then air-dried, sealed, and mailed off to the lab.But Fortune had a big question: Do these tests actually work? Short of becoming a geneticist and analyzing the DNA yourself, if you have a mixed breed rescue, how can you know whether any of this is legit? I decided to try out the two brands currently available and see if they gave matching results for my dog, Addie.I asked representatives from both companies why the two sets of results differed, and both defended their results. Mindy Tenenbaum from DNA My Dog was confident that Addie's sample provided all the markers necessary to get a full report, and said if there was any English springer spaniel or bulldog in the mix, they would have reported it. "Although the English setter reported at a low level I see very specific features of the setter in her face," Tenenbaum said. "She has the 'look' of what an English setter often looks like in a mix.” She sent a link to images of English setter/Lab mixes, and some of them did look like my dog.
