Our humans were so happy to find out our genetic makeup and breed characteristics. Thanks Dog DNA!
With the dog breed DNA test, you'll be able to better understand your pet. Why does he or she do the things that they do? For instance, "Why does my dog run up to a bush, lean forward and lift a paw?" Surprise! Your canine's breed heritage contains some dominant variation of the sporting-type, "Pointer" in them!
Over the years, dogs have been genetically bred for a range of uses, activities and performance characteristics, such as: hunting; attacking other dogs or animals for sport; attacking people; farmyard work; watchdog/guarding; herding; ranching; sledge/cart pulling; sight/scene following and as people companions.
Poodles were originally bred as a German working dog with a water resistant coats for wetlands. Beagles and Bloodhounds, with baggy lips, were bred for outstanding taste and smell, which is highly desirable when following a scent. The Chihuahua was bred to be a hot water bottle to keep an owner warm. Bulldogs were bred to attach and hang on to the noses of bulls – hence the name.
