I did two different tests on our Barkley. He looked like a golden, just curly fur. The first test was a cheek swab that asked for a photo. I didn't send the photo and they ended up sending me another swab kit. Our veterinarian did it for us. It came back as only Golden Retriever. It only tested for 65 breeds so I was skeptical. When Wisdom Panel first came out they used a blood draw from a veterinarian (is that still the case?) and tested for 135 breeds (more or less). They did not ask for a photo or anything and it also came back Golden Retriever. We just left it at that because he had 100% of the golden personality and spirit. Even if he had come back a total mish mash of breeds we still loved him totally and that's what really counts!

The Wisdom Panel is a cheek swab (actually, they give you two swabs, just to be sure that you get a good sample). They do not ask for a photo, although you can upload a photo, once the results are completed, that is then added to the certificate.

I think the Wisdom panel is better than the other one out there. They are not 100%, but can be pretty darn close. There are some breeds that are "close" in DNA - I think a person could get a lot more out of the tests if they had that info.

We've had Wisdom Panel Insights do two tests. Both were very accurate. All we sent was the swab. Once we got the results back for Katie (Our 75% Bichon/25% Pappilion self rescue) and Buddy, a rescue *Laura* adopted last December, the results of the DNA test were readily apparent looking at them. Both were gifts my SIL sent for Christmas.

I could recommend Wisdom Panel Insights DNA test to anyone.

We did the wisdom panel the first week it was released to the market because our vet was curious as well and it was definitely a blood draw. I think they changed it later.

I did a Wisdom panel test on Cheyenne, my little black mix breed dog. The first time they sent me another kit and said there was not enough sample on the swabs. The second time they sent me the results. They said my 16 ", 30lb, solid black dog was a St. Bernarnd/German Shepherd/Labrador mix.

This is my St. Bernard/Shepherd mix - she is full grown and will not get any bigger. I am convinced they mixed the samples up with someone elses, but they would not let me send in another set of swabs for another test. They gave me a refund because there is no way that's right.
