Breed Library: The Wisdom Panel Insights Breed Library Detecting 185+ Breeds in a Mixed-Breed Dog. Wisdom Panel Insights covers 159 of the 161 American Kennel Club (AKC) registered dogs plus eleven additional breeds, most of which are found on the AKC’s Foundation Stock Service List. By understanding the various breeds’ traits and histories, you may be able to recognize some of them in your mixed-breed dog. What Will My Dog’s Report Tell Me?: Wisdom Panel Insights not only detects the breeds in your dog’s ancestry, it will also model an ancestry chart showing where each breed was likely involved so you can see when the breeds contributed to your dog’s family history! Parent: A breed that represents approximately 50% of your dog’s DNA. You are likely to see the most physical and behavioral traits from this breed. Dogs with mixed-breed parents will not have a breed represented at this level. Grandparent: A breed that represents approximately 25% of your dog’s DNA. You may see some physical and behavioral traits from this breed. Dogs with a very mixed ancestry may not have a breed represented at this level. Great-Grandparent: A breed that represents approximately 12.5% of your dog’s DNA. You are unlikely to see many traits from this breed unless they are dominant. Breed ancestry tree going back three generations. Detailed breed profiles for each of the breeds detected. Adult weight range prediction to help with nutrition and diet choices. Access for consumers to the Mars Veterinary customer care team for report questions and trait analysis. Ancestry certificate for framing.
